In this episode we are going to continue looking at the AutoMapper framework.

AutoMapper is a framework which uses a convention-based matching algorithm to match up source to destination values. In this episode we are going to learn how to use type resolvers. Type resolvers allow you to perform custom value mapping in a very simple and elegant way with very little code

In this episode we will take a look at how we can simplify our entity mapping by using AutoMapper.

AutoMapper uses a fluent configuration API to define an object-object mapping strategy. AutoMapper uses a convention-based matching algorithm to match up source to destination values. Currently, AutoMapper is geared towards model projection scenarios to flatten complex object models to DTOs and other simple objects, whose design is better suited for serialization, communication, messaging, or simply an anti-corruption layer between the domain and application layer.
