Language Integrated Query (LINQ)

Last night I attended a San Diego .NET Users Group meeting where the topic was LINQ. The presentation was done by Julie Lerman (http://www.thedatafarm.com/blog and http://blogs.devsource.com/devlife).

Since I have an interest in ORM (see here) I’ve done some reading on LINQ in the past. It’s always amazing to me how much more you seem to learn from a presentation. Especially when the speaker is well organized and knowledgeable and provides an engaging delivery. Great job Julie!

LINQ is very impressive. The new .NET Framework Orcas (VS 2008) language features include:

  • Automatic Properties
  • Extension Methods
  • Lambda Expressions
  • Query Syntax
  • Anonymous Types

These not only provide a foundation for ORM work, but are also powerful .NET language and tool additions for just about any programming task.
