Our intent is to provide a forum for developers to learn about and discuss the various components of a production quality ASP.NET application.



Tuesday, August 23, 2011 (CST) - LINQ - An Average Joe's Guide (or "It's not all about SQL")
speaker: Cory Smith

Microsoft
6PM - 9PM



Microsoft Language Integrated Query (LINQ) offers developers a new way to query data using strongly-typed queries and strongly-typed results, common across a number of disparate data types including relational databases, .NET objects, and XML. By using strongly-typed queries and results, LINQ improves developer productivity with the benefits of IntelliSense and compile-time error checking. In this discussion, Cory will demonstrate the basics of LINQ and how it provides much more than just the ability to query a SQL Server database.
