LINQ for Visual C# 2008
C # programmers at any level need to learn about LINQ (Language-Integrated Query),
Microsoft’s breakthrough technology for simplifying and unifying data access from
any data source. With LINQ you can write more elegant and flexible code, not just to
access databases and files but also to manipulate data structures and XML.
LINQ for Visual C# 2008 is a short guide to the major features of LINQ. It thor-
oughly covers LINQ to Objects, LINQ to SQL, LINQ to DataSet, and LINQ to XML. For
instance, you’ll learn to
• Use the LINQ syntax
• Use LINQ to Objects to query in-memory objects
• Integrate LINQ to SQL with existing ADO.NET programs
• Query XML documents/data using LINQ to XML
• Integrate LINQ to SQL and LINQ to XML
The book also includes plenty of working examples to demonstrate LINQ in action.
There is no better source than this book for getting a fast head start on this technology.
