Description

From the LINQ Project site (http://msdn.microsoft.com/netframework/future/linq):

“The LINQ Project is a codename for a set of extensions to the .NET Framework that encompass language-integrated query, set, and transform operations. It extends C# and Visual Basic with native language syntax for queries and provides class libraries to take advantage of these capabilities.”

Wee Hyong Tok (SQL MVP) is one of Singapore’s local experts who has been keeping abreast of the project.  He dropped by Chewy’s office (Developer Evangelist) to talk about LINQ and show it in action.  In this video:

-          Overview of LINQ

-          LINQ in Action… lots of code demos

-          Overview of BLINQ

-          BLINQ in Action

You can find out more about what Wee Hyong’s working on via his blog (http://sqlservergems.blogspot.com).

    The Discussion

      I think source code was obfuscated for HUGE reason! Big Smile

      So, result of this video equal to 0. Just because words are just a mix of sounds and absolutely worthless, but source code isn't visible at all.Cool

      this is a really cool video...


      is "okay - okay - okay" the most common phrase in Singapore ? Tongue Out

      I really like the way that they have mixed Camtasia with video footage - makes the code a lot easier to understand and follow.  Maybe something for other C9 videos?

      no.. this is an exception Smiley

      Yeah, sorry about that folks.  The multi-bit rate encoding for the streamed version of this video made the "code" seem as if it was blurred out.  Heck, my head looks like something out of a bad Hong Kong movie (accentuated my bad haircut).

      Tech reason: screen cap resolution != encoded streaming video resolution

      If you would like to view the code, download the hi-res video.  Wee Hyong's code samples are quite cool.

      Thanks for high lighting the issue... we'll look into how we can fix this.

      Yours truly,

      Chewy "ok, ok, ok" Chong Wink

      I thought this was a great introduction to LINQ, not to mention some of the Lisp-like syntax in C# 3.0. The download of the full video so you can see the code is well worth it!

      Kudos to the Singapore team Wink

      Ah yes, how could we ever forget the divine intervention that was the S$50 COE?

      hi, just went through the video. 

      thought this was an excellent piece that complements the other videos on channel9 on LINQ featuring Anders Hejlsberg et al. -- sort of a "about LINQ for mere mortals"

      enjoyed it!   of course,  the singlish fostered a sense of familiarity too... Wink

      Excellent demonstration of an excellent technology! I particularly like the added production effort you put in:
      1. Handy on-screen pop-ups to present additional information from time to time, such as the BLINQ clarification and relevant URLS.
      2. Integration with Camtasia footage was much more slick than the usual "camera pointing at LCD monitor" approach used on Channel 9
      I think these production ideas could go well in other C9 videos...


      PS: Did you make it to your flight on time?

      excellent video, but as the code is not visable clearly we are not clear on the whole.

      where can i download the video with better quality Smiley
