Diego Vega is currently a Developer Lead on the Entity Framework team at Microsoft. Originally he joined the team as a Program Manager and worked on several core areas of the product such as LINQ to Entities, POCO support, T4-based code generation, etc. Then he and a few others gestated the big shift that started with EF 4.1, Code First and the DbContext API, and that more recently gave rise to the open sourcing of the EF codebase. Before Microsoft, Diego spent almost two decades working as a developer primarily building data-centric applications and small frameworks, and as a consultant, helping others create better software and make the most of their code investments.
