Ever wish you could test a LINQ query without pressing F5 in Visual Studio? Book author Joseph Albahari who wrote C# 3.0 in a NutShell has released LINQPad, a free tool that let you do just that. Coolness factor: 11!
This is an excellent product. I have developed a similar one, except that it works in-line with your application. It is called Q-Expose ("query expose") and you can see in on my web site www.fencel.com
I’ve been using this software for a few months now. It was great to get me started with Linq and with Entity Framework. I strongly recommend buying the software to encourage Joseph Albahari. Once you have the Autocompletion, everything simply flows and it becomes a time saver. It’s been great so far and I definitely will continue to recommend it to anyone working with these technologies.
