Suppress Columns in Entity Framework Code First

I’m not a big fan of “Code First”. One issue with deriving table design from object model is that object model frequently includes properties that we don’t want to appear as columns in database. The most common example of this are read-only properties whose values are calculated internally from other properties in the object.
You can use the NotMapped Annotation to instruct Code-First to exclude a particular property.

public class Customer
public int CustomerID { set; get; }
public string FirstName { set; get; }
public string LastName{ set; get; }
public int Age { set; get; }

That’s it.

He shares his design approach for displaying and updating this data with real examples from the test web application he built.
