As part of my research and preparations for my presentation on the new Entity Framework at the VSLive New York conference, I came across a great tool (thanks to Kim) for learning and playing with LINQ to Entities queries. The application (C# source code) can be downloaded from http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/EFQuerySamples
As you can see from the screen shot on the download page, this app organizes it large set of sample queries into differnent categories and often offers both the standard LINQ and the method form of the queries. In addition to the queries, you can see the results of their execution against different versions of SQL Server and SQL CE.
A great learning tool...
The first of the much talked about Seinfeld video for Microsoft can be seen at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uz6amk3P-hY
Not much of a message, but you'll enjoy it if you are a Seinfeld fan. Gates plays a great straight man as well.
