Welcome to the Interactive Playground for inspecting generated SQL for migrations in Entity Framework Code-First models. This tool empowers developers to explore and analyze the SQL statements generated during the migration process for a specified Entity Framework Code-First model. The playground facilitates a hands-on experience, allowing developers to interactively inspect the generated SQL, promoting better understanding and troubleshooting of database schema changes.

Using the Interactive Playground will give insight into how different providers map the same model.
