July 2009 Meeting

0-60 with Fluent NHibernate

Time for NHibernate at Chicago ALT.NET. Hudson Akridge familiarizes us with the Fluent NHibernate project, which aims at simplifying NHibernate's configuration.

Hudson's talk was one of the best reviewed in the recent Chicago Code Camp and will no doubt make you happy to leave those XML mapping files behind.

Fluent NHibernate is a framework, that sits on top of NHibernate, which helps to cut down on some of the headaches you will indubitably encounter with picking up such a mature ORM. We'll be discussing how FNH can help cut down the learning curve of using NHibernate as an ORM and how it can benefit existing NHibernate production environments long term.


You can also download the slides and sample code from this session.

Hudson Akridge is currently a developer on the Fluent NHibernate team, maintains the tool "NHibernate Query Analyzer", and uses both NHibernate and Fluent in the day to day of a large production environment.
