21.12 Tools and Web Resources

Deitel has created an extensive LINQ Resource Center at www.deitel.com/LINQ that contains many links to additional information, including blogs by Microsoft LINQ team members, sample chapters, tutorials and videos.

A useful tool for learning LINQ is LINQPad (www.linqpad.net), which defines itself as a code snippet IDE. It allows you to execute any Visual Basic or C# expression, including LINQ queries, and view their results. It also supports connecting to a SQL Server database and querying it using SQL and LINQ to SQL.

DbLinq is an open-source project to add LINQ support for DBMSs other than Microsoft SQL Server—including Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL and SQLite. The current development version can be downloaded from code2code.net/DB_Linq/.
