In the last article of learning Entity Framework, we learned about the code-first approach and code-first migrations. In this article, we’ll learn how to perform CRUD operations with ASP.NET Web API2 and Entity Framework. We’ll go step by step in the form of a tutorial to set up a basic Web API project and we’ll use the code-first approach of Entity Framework to generate the database and perform CRUD operations. If you are new to Entity Framework, follow my previous articles explaining data access approaches with Entity Framework. The article would be less of a theory and more practical so that we get to know how to set up a Web API project using Entity Framework and perform CRUD operations. We’ll not create a client for this application but rather use Postman; i.e., the tool to test the REST endpoints.
