Conventions for Code First

The latest preview of Code First allows you to describe a model using C# or VB.Net classes. The basic shape of the model is detected by convention and then a fluent API can be used to further refine your model.
We recently posted about our plans to support Data Annotations as another way to further describe your model. We are now looking at extending and improving the conventions that initially infer the shape of the model. This post describes the conventions we are planning to include.
Conventions are designed to provide a starting point for a model. Data Annotations or the fluent API can then be used to further describe the model or change what was detected by convention. Precedence is given to configuration via the fluent API followed by Data Annotations then convention.
