Just a personal favourite poem that inspires me and helps me up on my feet at times when i feel down. Just thought to put it down here:

CDNug January meeting: Introduction to Linq

I did a session for the Colombo .NET User Group on Linq. The purpose of the session was to introduce Linq and explain about some of the new features in C# and VB.NET in the context of Linq. I managed to do small introductions to related technologies such as Linq to XML, Linq to SQL and Linq to entities. Though this was an introductory session, i guess i had to squeeze a lot of things within 1 1/2 hours.
Maybe on the upcoming User Group sessions we can take specific Linq topics and dive deep within it.

Head First C#

I am a big fan of the head first series. Almost had all the books in the series cos it's a very easy read and it's technology presented in the most learnable manner. So it was such a pleasure to find that Head First C# was released.The book covers most of the C# 3.0 features including Linq and its a good treat for anyone who is looking for a good C# book that is fun to read.
So for anyone who have already gone through a few head first books, you will know what to expect from this one too.
