LINQ's relationship to the new C#3 and VB9 features


Right click “Save as…”

Author: Hi, I am Daniel Moth

Introduction: The Language Integrated Query (LINQ) is the headline feature of the Visual Studio 2008 release. Most of LINQ is based on the new C#3 and VB9 language features. In this video, I demonstrate the association between the compiler features and LINQ. In particular, you learn about the relationship to LINQ of Local Variable Type Inference, Object Initiliasers, Anonymous Types, Extension MethodsLambda Expressions and Query Expressions.

    Awesome! This was a great way to demonstrate the various C# 3.0/3.5 features and also introduce to LINQ. I've read the blogs and MSDN articles on this, but this was probably the best/quick way to get hands dirty.

    Looking forward to more of these (probably on individual topics, but going a little deeper - like Extensions, anonymous types, query interfaces, etc).

    The download links via RSS seem to have a problem.
  • Moltas: Glad you enjoyed it Smiley

    Keeron: Thanks. To get more on each C# 3.0 and VB9 language feature, follow the links to my blog for each. I have other VS2008 and Fx 3.5 videos in the pipeline so stay tuned Wink

    Bydia: Not sure which RSS feed you are referring to. Sorry, but the download is not available at all (schocking I know :O). You can only stream this video for now. When I have a download link available, I will add it above.
  • awesome - really good explanation of the path to LINQ

    Clear and concise. I'd dearly love this for my archives.

    Please follow up with a download of this work, it lends itself to reuse.

  • Agreed.  This was most excellent.  More from the Moth!  Wink

  • Hey Daniel,

    I saw you not so long ago present in Reading and it was great. You were the best presenter that day (actually, it was on par with the great ScottGu at WebDD!). As a result I've subscribed to your blog. It's nice to hear things like this coming out from Reading,UK Smiley Keep up the good work
