Demo context:

In the SDN Cast Demo we tried to get an old .NET Forms application to be ported to .NET Core by switching out the backend using Entity Framework Core and existing databases. This didn’t go all that smooth but got it to work in the end showing the principle of how to get your hands on it and show what kind of issues you can run into doing this.

Here is a link we used to get us in the right direction:
