Programming Microsoft LINQ in Microsoft .NET Framework 4

With LINQ, you can query data from a variety of sources — including databases, objects, and XML files — directly from Microsoft Visual Basic® or C#. Guided by data-access experts who’ve worked in depth with LINQ and the Microsoft development teams, you’ll learn how .NET Framework 4 implements LINQ, and how to exploit it. Clear examples show you how to deliver your own data-access solutions faster and with leaner code.
