Marcel de Vries



This session will show in what way developers can leverage the power of LINQ. This session will not dive into how LINQ works but for a change will give you an idea on what you need to know as the programmer using LINQ and how you can apply it to different parts of your work including manipulating in memory objects, data from a database and of course XML.

This session will start with an introduction to the LINQ syntax. From this introduction we take a journey into the different available technologies that ship with Visual the .NET framework and are LINQ enabled. These technologies include XLINQ, LINQ to DataSets and Entity Framework.

You will learn:
• How LINQ actually works for C# programmers
• How to just use LINQ and to read its syntax
• Make the step to LINQ
