About This Episode

The latest version of the .Net Framework includes a technology called LINQ.  Developers are digging their teeth into it and Deep Fried Bytes is here to help with them work out the KINQs in LINQ.  Keith and Woody sit down with Jim Wooley and discuss the truths, gotchas and a few rusty washers about LINQ.

Thanks to our guest this episode

LINQ is a great technology but recently Microsoft said that they're ending the development life cycle of LINQ and will be replaced by the Entity Framework in .NET 4.0. Since LINQ appears to be effectively dead in the water, could you get Jim Wooley back on to comment on the possible (if any) future of LINQ?

Hi Ervin,

LINQ is not dead Ervin. I think you are confusing one small segment of LINQ which is LINQ to SQL with Entity Framework. LINQ is a general technology, it isn't going anywhere. Event LINQ to SQL may not be going anywhere, the official word is the team is thinking about it, and taking community feedback.
