  • Blog Post: Tech Ed

    I'm currently down in sunny Orlando, getting ready for Tech Ed (or is it TechEd? That dot between letters is a very odd thing).

    Index usage One of the features of the DataView that often gets overlooked is its ability to very quickly find a DataRow (or multiple DataRows) by an index value.

  • Blog Post: LINQ to DataSet WebCast (May 2, 2007) - Samples and slides

    This morning I performed a MSDN WebCast on LINQ to DataSet. I hope it was useful for people, and that I was able to answer all the questions sufficiently. If you missed the live show, you can always catch the "TiVo" version (i.e., on demand webcast). I'll update this post with the URL once it is posted...
