Erik Meijer on LINQ!!
Episode #270 Thursday, September 6, 2007
Erik Meijer (a.k.a. the Head in the Box) talks to Carl and Richard in detail about LINQ from soup to nuts. This is a very technical discussion, and not an overview.
Erik Meijer is a technical lead in the WebData group. His alter-ego is VBTV's "Head in the Box". Before joining Microsoft, he was an associate professor at Utrecht University where he worked on advanced scripting languages such as Haskell, XMLambda, and Mondrian and directed the Microsoft lab (now defunct). He is currently working on language and type-system support for bridging the worlds of object-oriented (CLR), relational (SQL), and hierarchical (XML) data, and of course first class functions.
