Earlier today I was looking at the blog activity, and saw that a new milestone had been reached.

Today marks achieving 100,000+ hits. Thank you for taking time to visit this little blog. I hope that means that the content on here is valuable. Writing about various technical topics and ideas is a fun pastime and helps me formalize a lot of ideas/solutions that I ultimately utilize as a professional developer.

Here’s to the next milestone!

One deficiency with Entity Framework is the ability to load data from a stored procedure or a direct query when the column names don’t match your model property names exactly. In one of my previous posts, I detailed how the EF API can be used to retrieve column mappings. These column mappings can be used in conjunction with a SqlDataReader to map a query result, properly, to your EF model.
