Get flash to fully experience Pearltrees
I posted two blog posts last weekend about using LINQ to easily perform data access against a database. Several people have asked me for more details on LINQ to SQL since then. Sahil Malik made some excellent posts earlier this summer that go into more detail about LINQ to SQL (aka DLINQ) and how it works.

Over the last few months I wrote a series of blog posts that covered some of the new language features that are coming with the Visual Studio and .NET Framework "Orcas" release. Here are pointers to the posts in my series: The above language features help make querying data a first class programming concept. We call this overall querying programming model "LINQ" - which stands for .NET Language Integrated Query . Developers can use LINQ with any data source. They can express efficient query behavior in their programming language of choice, optionally transform/shape data query results into whatever format they want, and then easily manipulate the results.
