Linq and The LINQPad Challenge
In my quest to learn more about Linq, C# 3.0 and .Net 3.5 I downloaded Joseph Albahari‘s excellent LINQPad. If you look at one of the sections toward the bottom of the LINQPad page you’ll see The LINQPad challenge. The basic idea is to use LINQPad exclusively for an entire week for all of your querying of SQL Server and by the end of the week you’ll be thinking in LINQ and will likely end up preferring LINQ to T-SQL.
So I’m taking up the challenge. Version 1.0 of LINQPad has many built in samples that are taken from Joseph’s new book, so this is a good starting point.
I’ll follow up on my findings as I get more into LINQ.
