this is the best article i’ve seen describing linq
this is a new programming language / interface microsoft created to help with querying date sets (whether it be sql, xml, arrays, etc…)
until i found this article, it was very tough to relate it to SQL… like think about SQL query context…
SELECT * FROM customers
if you get that, this post will help you understand how linq translates to sql and vice versa.
i highlighted the different languages which have equal results for your viewing pleasure.
