1. Live From Redmond: VB9 – Introduction to LINQ in Visual Basic
Key Concepts:LINQ stands for Language Integrated Query and it allows you to query over things like objects, databases and XML in a standard way with a new syntax available in the latest versions of Visual Basic and C#. In this Webcast you will learn how to get started writing LINQ queries using the simple but powerful query syntax available in Visual Basic. We'll walk through a variety of basic queries as well look at aggregates and groups over different data sources. You will also see how writing queries over XML using specific Visual Basic syntax like XML literals and axis properties can help you be much more productive when working with XML.Presenters: Beth Massi is a Program Manager on the Visual Studio Community Team.

2. MSDN Webcast: Introduction to Microsoft .NET Language Integrated Query, Code-Named the “LINQ” Project
Key Concepts:The Microsoft .NET Language Integrated Query, code-named the “LINQ” project, is a set of extensions to the Microsoft .NET Framework that encompass language-integrated query, set, and transform operations. LINQ extends Microsoft Visual C# and Visual Basic with native language syntax for queries and provides class libraries to take advantage of these capabilities. In this session, we cover some of the basics of LINQ and explore the key LINQ-related components, such as:
• BLINQ – A tool for generating Microsoft ASP.NET Web sites for displaying, creating, and manipulating data based on database schema
• LINQ to SQL (formerly DLINQ) – A specialized API for accessing Structured Query Language (SQL) relational databases
• LINQ to XML (formerly XLINQ) – A lightweight, rational, and simple API for manipulating XMLPresenter: Anand "AI" Iyer, Developer Evangelist, Microsoft Corporation
