Tech Ed 2011 Atlanta – It’s Good to Be an Alumni
Woke up this morning and decided to finally stop by the Alumni Lounge. I had been meaning to check it out, but I had been so busy with such great presentations and hanging out in the Blogger’s Lounge that I never got around to it. I truly wish I had stopped in sooner! There’s nice bottles of soda with glasses for ice so you can have it nice and cold as well as a hot beverage bar. And this morning there were delicious cinnamon rolls (the nemesis of my beltline, alas!) and other treats and candies. ......

For the purposes of this discussion, I will split these 5 methods into homogeneous and heterogeneous methods (for lack of better terms). “Homogeneous” combinations ......

C#/.NET Little Wonders: The LINQ Set Operations -- they're not just for math!
Once again, in this series of posts I look at the parts of the .NET Framework that may seem trivial, but can help improve your code by making it easier to write and maintain. Today we are going to examine the LINQ set operations that are part of the IEnumerable<T> extension methods. Now, most of the time when people think of set operations they think of the math or logic classes they are usually taught in, but really these LINQ methods have a much larger appeal and applicability than just math ......
