  1. Hi

    Thanks for writing nice artical series on dapper. It is very nice. I have one question. Does it give performance like EF or SQL Store procedure ?

    1. I think there is myth that stored procedure is fast then simple query. They used dapper in 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.

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