Lil’ NHibernate Tip
This may be in the documentation somewhere, but I certainly missed it and cannot find it. I thought I’d make a little post about it, so that I’d remember it, and maybe help someone else who missed it in the documentation too.

I am adding this book to my must read list. I got through it in about a week. It is VERY easy to read. For developers looking to take their development skills to the next level and are not able to go to Jeffrey's course, ......
