Introduction to LINQ

LINQ(Language Integrated Query) introduced in VS 2008. Even though you don't know query languages(SQL,XML,...) you can write queries by using LINQ (In C# and VB.NET). Because you write queries by using language keywords and familier words.

We can write the LINQ queries for the following :

  • Collection of Objects (should support IEnumerable or generic IEnumerable)
  • XML
