Do you use delegates in .NET? If so, then Func<T> and Action<T> are just waiting to make your life easier. Not using delegates? Maybe you should. We'll take a look at what delegates are, why you would want to use them, and how to use Func<T> and Action<T> to tie things all together (with a few Lambdas thrown in just for fun). No specific experience with delegates is required, but knowing the basics of .NET programming will be helpful. Slides, Demo Code, and Walkthrough available here: http://www.jeremybytes.com/Demos.aspx
Lambda expressions can be confusing the first time you walk up to them. But once you get to know them, you’ll see that they are a great addition to your toolbox. Used properly, they can add elegance and simplicity to your code. And some .NET constructs (such as LINQ) lend themselves to lambda expressions. We’ll take a look at how lambda expressions work and see them in action. No specific experience is required (but some .NET is helpful).
