Visual Basic 2008 - New Language Features
Leading up to LINQ

This presentation will take a look at new features in Visual Basic.Net version 9 / Visual Studio 2008.

We'll take a look at these features:

 - Extenstion Methods
 - Nullable types
 - IF operator
 - Anonymous Types (Var)
 - Implicit Typing
 - Object and Array Initializors
 - XML support
 - LINQ
 - LINQ-to-SQL

 While some of these features stand on thier own, many of them are part of the language to facililitate LINQ.  We'll take a look at LINQ-to-Objects, LINQ-to-XML, and LINQ-to-SQL.
