Recently before some time I have created a blog post about list of blog post I have written about Petapoco Micro ORM. So one of the friend suggested I should write same kind of series post about Dapper Micro ORM so that reader of my blog can find the all the posts on same page. So that’s why I writing this blog post.

What is dapper:

Dapper is Micro ORM developed by Sam Saffron few years ago while he was working as lead developer at stack exchange. This ORM was developed specially for Stack Exchange QA sites like stackoverflow.com and superuser.com for the performance improvement. It has got a single file where all the code has been written. You can download dapper Micro ORM from the following location.

  1. Hi

    1. I think there is myth that stored procedure is fast then simple query. They used dapper in stackoverflow.com without any stored procedure and still works fine and delivers great performance.

      Another thing the purpose of creating dapper was performance its super fast. See following list for comparison of Enttity framework 6.0. http://www.barebonescoder.com/2013/11/dapper-vs-ef-6-part-3-the-winner/

      So when choose if you want lots of features then go for entity framework and if you want performance then go for dapper.
