Do you still find yourself writing a lot of loops, and you can't help but think there must be a better way? Well, you are probably right. LINQ can help you aggregate data, extract data from existing collections, process XML, select data from EF and much more. This seminar shows you common (an uncommon) examples where you might have used loops in the past, and how to translate those into LINQ queries. LINQ is very powerful and generally is much faster than using loops, so start using it today.

You will learn:

  • LINQ basics
  • Moving from loops to LINQ
  • Checking performance of LINQ vs loops
