Did you know that there are samples built right into the Help section of Visual Studio 2008? I didn’t, but VB geek Chris Love pointed it out to me:

So I have been having a problem designing a rather odd LINQ to EF statement the past week and I decided to contact my friend on the Entity Framework team, Erick Thompson. he said oh yah, I created something like what you are looking for in the 101 sample queries. I looked for several hours this weekend to figure out what he was talking about, no luck. So I told him I found nothing and he then pointed me to the Resource of Resources, my own computer!

  • Open Visual Studio
  • Click the Help Menu
  • Select Samples (yah, like I saw that I never use help you know)

Read the whole post for the skinny on these cool samples.
