TH13 LINQ Programming Model


1:30 PM - 2:45 PM

Level: Introductory

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:

Many classic C# programmers still don’t use LINQ because they look at the syntax and have just no clue how this would work. They know it might be powerful but still have some problems grasping how LINQ actually works for them. This session will help programmers that are less interested in how LINQ works but just want to use it for their day to day programming work and just use it and know how to read its syntax.
