# Use localdb in SQL Server connection strings
I can never remember how to type up Sql Server connectionstrings using localdb. The thing about localdb is that it just works, no setup required.
Ef core will even create the db on the fly when running
context.Database.Migrate(); if it doesn't already exist. This means happy times whenever you or your team mates are doing a fresh clone 😄
This "blog" is basically a place for reminders like these. However small and stupid.
