.NET 3.5 Overview c/o History of LINQ

By Michael Flanakin @ 7:33 AM :: 1875 Views :: .NET :: Digg it!

If you haven't kept up on .NET 3.5 like a good little developer, then you're probably only sparsely familiar with what we have coming out this year. Luckily, you can catch up fairly quickly with a bit of history of LINQ Mobile-ready link, the most talked about of these new features. You'll also get a good understanding of how LINQ works under the covers, which is somewhat interesting. Of course, not everything is covered in this article, so there's still more you should read. I just thought this was some interesting insight into how some of the features came about. I still question the value of some of the features, but all-in-all, I think it's turned out well so far. We'll see how it goes throughout the year, when Visual Studio "Rosario" gets rolled out with, what I'm assuming will be an updated version of .NET and the languages. Most likely, it'll only be minor performance improvements and other tweaking, but that's yet to be seen.
