Introducing Microsoft LINQ

less than 1 minute read

This book is built on the beta of version 3.5 of the .NET framework. Since LINQ is a subset of the language enhancements made to .NET 3.5, the author chose to cover some of them also like Local Type Inference, kinda cool but I think it will lead to sloppy code. Overall I would say go out and get the book since .NET 3.5 is here. Topics Include:

  • LINQ Introduction
  • C# Language Features
  • Visual Basic 9 Language Features
  • LINQ Syntax Fundamentals
  • LINQ to SQL
  • LINQ to XML
  • ADO.NET Entity Framework
