|Microsoft LINQ Resource Center|
Welcome to the Microsoft LINQ Resource Center. LINQ (Language-Integrated Query) is a general purpose querying capability that is built into the Visual Studio 2008 versions of Visual Basic and C#, and supported by enhancements to the .NET Framework. LINQ enables programmers to work with both in-memory data (such as collections) and external data (such as databases) using a uniform syntax. LINQ also benefits from compile-time type checking, static typing and Intellisense to enable programmers to write robust data-driven applications. Start your search here for the latest LINQ articles, tools, tutorials, videos, forums, blogs and more. In the Microsoft LINQ Resource Center, you'll find links to:
