Debug .NET Source Code

Scott Guthrie announced [1] some weeks ago that Microsoft will offer the source code of the .NET framework. The source code will be released under the Microsoft Reference License [2] (MS-RL) and includes all comments which is very useful.

LINQ Quickly (Book Review)

1847192548 I got a copy of LINQ Quickly from Packt Publishing. Language Integrated Query (LINQ) is a new feature in Visual Studio 2008 that extends its query capabilities, using C# and Visual Basic. Visual Studio 2008 comes with LINQ provider assemblies that enable the use of LINQ with data sources such as in-memory collections, SQL relational databases, ADO.NET DataSets, XML documents, ect.
