Hands on Lab DEV20 - LINQ

Here at TechEd, one of the more interesting labs in the DEV area (HOL North) is DEV20, Mapping objects to Database Tables with LINQ to SQL. This is an amazing lab that walks through some of the new features of LINQ that will be released with the .NET 3.5 Framework.

LINQ, which stands for Language INtegrated Query, is a new extension that essentially removes (that may be a bit too strong) the problems associated with the impedence mismatch between relational database storage/access and object-oriented programming.

More information can be found about LINQ here.

If you are here at TechEd, stop by the HOL North and take a look at DEV20, if you are a database geek you will not be disappointed!
