Join Kit George, Visual Basic Program Manager, and explore the new LinQ features in Visual Basic. Kit will show how to take advantage of LinQ to build applications that query and aggregate data from multiple sources, including in-memory objects, databases, and XML. The webcast starts today at 9AM PST -- Register here!
Kit did a good job on the presentation, but not on proof-reading and testing the VB code samples in "LINQ to SQL: .NET Language-Integrated Query for Relational Data."
See http://oakleafblog.blogspot.com/2007/04/more-issues-with-vb-90-samples-in.html for an example of how VB 9.0 is treated by C#-oriented writers/developers.
Roger, thanks for the note. We'll be double-checking that document to ensure it's a-ok. We did actually go over it fairly closely, ensuring that items ran, but we might have missed the odd element piece of code in translation. Certainly, what we put in the document at time of publication was what was capable at the time (with a few errors it seems), not necessarilly what we would do now. We'll have to revisit that document and ensure it's got the best syntax, thanks for the note
