Jonathan,

Is there a document that contains instructions on how to build the Entity Framework 4.0 Sample Application?

Thanks!

It would be nice if this was better documented for the noob

I receive an error of unhandled exception when the program starts executing (C#) return this.context.Departments.ToList(), which is line 50 of the Employee Tracker.
How can this be fixed?

In the Application.xaml.vb file, change the UseFakes Boolean to True and it will work.

I agree with noob, it would be great if some documentation is provided (e.g. at least an overview, design of classes, and how the technologies are interrelated)

This is a great solution to base a mini course around.
Sorry but I'm an amateur programmer, but would like to improve.
I'd like to pickup and adopt Entityframe and this looks to be a great resource material to learn and pick up the knowledge from. Unfortunately there are too many concepts mixed into here that makes it hard for a noob like me to pick up and understand.
Saying that the concepts used in here are also essential and good to learn in conjunction so we can see in the real world how they are utilised.

Is it possible we can have a document / mini site somewhere that talks a bit more into some of the techniques used within the project?

Like
1. Code Organisation: Why the code should be organised into it's current projects
2. Model: How to create / generate the model
3. Interface usage: Discussions and benefits of using Interfaces in this scenario
4. Pattern Strategy: Explanation of the UnitofWork and Repository pattern strategy within this scenario
5. MVVM: Walk and talk through on the construction of the View and ViewModel in this scenario
6. Testing Strategy: Walk and talk through on the Testing and Fake object strategy

What are your thoughts on something like this?
