Programming Microsoft Linq in Microsoft .Net Framework 4by Paolo Pialorsi
Synopses & Reviews
Dig into LINQ — and transform the way you work with data.
With LINQ, you can query data from a variety of sources — including databases, objects, and XML files — directly from Microsoft Visual Basic® or C#. Guided by data-access experts who've worked in depth with LINQ and the Microsoft development teams, you'll learn how .NET Framework 4 implements LINQ, and how to exploit it. Clear examples show you how to deliver your own data-access solutions faster and with leaner code.

Guided by two data-access experts who've worked in depth with LINQ and the Microsoft development teams, readers will learn how Microsoft .NET Framework 4 implements LINQ, and how to exploit it.
LINQ, Language INtegrated Query, is a new extension to the Visual Basic and C# programming languages designed to simplify data queries and database interaction. This comprehensive, fast-paced guide serves as a multi-purpose tutorial for professional developers.
Get comprehensive guidance for using the Microsoft Language Integrated Query (LINQ) Projectwith in-depth insights from two experienced developers. Data-rich applications can be difficult to create because of the tremendous differences between query languages used to access data and the programming languages commonly used to write applications. This practical guide covers the intricacies of LINQ, a set of extensions to the Visual C# and Visual Basic programming languages. Instead of traversing different language syntaxes required for accessing data from relational and hierarchical data sources, developers will learn how to write queries natively in Visual C# or Visual Basichelping reduce complexity and boost productivity. Written by two experienced developers with strong ties to the developer teams at Microsoft, this book describes the LINQ architecture and classes, details the new language features in both Visual C# and Visual Basic, and provides code samples in both languages.
With LINQ, you can query data — no matter what the source — directly from Microsoft Visual Basic or C#. Guided by two data-access experts who've worked in depth with LINQ and the Microsoft development teams, you'll learn how Microsoft .NET Framework 4 implements LINQ, and how to exploit it. Study and adapt the book's examples, complete with code samples — and deliver your own solutions faster and with leaner code.
