LINQ – .NETs Nifty Little Query Syntax

Language Integrated Query is a powerful query syntax built into recent versions of C# and Visual Basic .NET. LINQ is capable of being utilized with any number of data stores and is commonly used with objects, XML and databases. In this session we will explore the basics of LINQ with examples alongside standard programming constructs.
