Join me and Avner Aharoni, a Program Manager on the Visual Basic Team, as he dives into LINQ to XML and XML Literals in Visual Basic 9 and explains namespace bubbling and the performance gains you may see using XML Literals. This is a good interview to pay attention to if you are struggling with how XML namespaces work in Visual Basic.

One funny note here about the interview -- I was having a hard time pronouncing Avner's last name so when I introduced him I was so focused on getting his name pronounced correctly (which I did) that I messed up and said "feature related to SQL to XML" instead of "feature related to LINQ to XML" Doh!

Get started with LINQ to XML in Visual Basic with these How-to Videos. And here are some good articles too.
