Conquering XML with LINQ in Visual Basic 9
XML permeates every modern application today from XHTML, XAML, RSS, SOAP, Open XML just to name a few. Even your Visual Studio project files and configuration settings are XML files. The latest version of Visual Basic in Visual Studio 2008 supports a new language syntax aimed at making you much more productive when working with XML. In this session we'll walk through language features like XML literals, embedded expressions and axis properties in order to create, query and transform complex XML with this powerful but easy to use syntax. We’ll also cover tips and tricks and look at other interesting and productive uses of this technology that you may have never thought of before. Say goodbye to XSLT and hello to Visual Basic 9.
