A rather link filled, topic filled VBB. Not many direct coding examples but lots of great information.
Silverlight and Dynamic Languages(8:04)
JB shared a little about an idea for a web site to allow developers to share katas and coding practices by creating code for a particular language that is stored as part of their profile on the site and be able to tweet an announcement about it. He is looking at using Silverlight and Dynamic languages for this and shared this link for information about how one might go about it.
JB shared how to use Sum, Select Many, and Aggregate. The code was put into his learning csharp project in my learning solution on GitHub.
JB plans on writing a couple of blog posts on these LINQ items so stay tuned if you want more LINQ goodness.
