Abstract

Talk Abstract
Language Integrated Query (LINQ) combines language features and APIs into an open and uniform querying model on .NET.

The new features of C# move the language in a more declarative direction with expression-based initialization, lambda expressions and monadic query comprehensions. We dip our toes in metaprogramming with quoting of code into expression trees.

These characteristics reach beyond LINQ and hint at the future evolution of the .NET languages and platform.
