Language Integrated Query (LINQ, pronounced “link”) is a Microsoft
.NET Framework component that adds native data querying capabilities
to .NET languages. Think of LINQ as the SQL you write in your .Net
code against almost anything that holds data.
This presentation will introduce the LINQ syntax and concepts. We will
cover LINQ to SQL, LINQ to Objects, Standard Query Operators for LINQ
as well as Extension Methods. Developers can return to work tomorrow
and start implementing what they learn in VisualStudio 2008 or 2010.
