  • What the World is saying about LINQ

    “LINQ is totally awesome. It’s like this thing that you use to condense your entire application into one line of demo code. Sweet!” - Stanley Morgan   “LINQ is divine but DLINQ is a delinquent. It gives programmers too much power and makes programming against data way too easy. Is nothing sacred anymore?” – Ned Flanders   “Lambdas ...

  • LINQ Designer Receives Prestigious Award at PDC

    In the wake and fanfare of the disclosure of the LINQ technology preview at the PDC 2005 in Los Angeles this last week, a member of the LINQ design team was presented with a prestigious award for outstanding achievement above and beyond his peers. Erik Meijer, most known for his antics as ''Head in the Box'' for VB TV and author of many ...

  • DLinq Mapping: External Or Not (Attributes or XML file)

    At PDC (and before that on ObjectSpaces project), this was a hot discussion topic. What approach is better: attributes or external source like an XML file. I would like to open up this topic beyond the 1:1 conversations at PDC to the blogosphere. I will start with a small backgrounder and you tell us which one makes more sense to you. Advantage ...

  • Connected, Disconnected and DLinq

    Here is another FAQ question that has come up at PDC. Since DLinq is a part of the next version of ADO.NET, it is natural to ask - is it connected or disconnected? After all, we have talked about connected vs disconnected components in ADO.NET quite a bit. DataReader is connected (you are using the underlying connection while consuming the data) ...

  • LINQ, BB’s and the HTTP’ness

    The Language Integrated Query (LINQ) demo during the PDC demo was exciting. There was applause all around whenever different products were shown and different speakers were introduced, yet when the LINQ demo was shown there was a lot of talk within the crowd, oohs and aahs, and a bunch of OMG-this-is-cool’s. The attendee sitting next to me pulled ...

  • ObjectSpaces:There and Back Again

    It seems fitting to make one last tribute to ObjectSpaces on the eve of the PDC. Last time around Luca was good enough to break the news to everyone, that ObjectSpaces was undergoing realignment with WinFS. That it was being pulled out of Whidbey and would or should appear sometime later. But we all knew what that meant.   ObjectSpaces was ...

  • Language Integrated Quirks

    It’s done. The pencils are down. The bits are baked. No more time for polish and there’s no turning back. Like a snapshot of the last two years of my life, the binaries have frozen in place all that my fingers have wrought, all the lines of logic, all the code, all the defects, all on disk now, a stable moment in time, a silent pause before the ...
