This short video contains the basic information that you need to use LINQ to SQL to connect to a relational database using the Feb CTP or later pre-release versions of Visual Studio Orcas. After watching this video you should find it easy to create your own LINQ to SQL queries.

Figure 01: A view of the The LINQ Object Releational Designer from the video.

The information in this video closely parallels the text of a recent LINQ Farm post entitled Connecting to a Database with LINQ to SQL. Within the limits of my innately verbose speaking style I've done what I can to keep this video short. It clocks in about 7 minutes and 30 seconds, so it should be something you can view during a coffee break. This is very simple, beginning level material, so kick back and enjoy.
