Fundamental Craftsmanship - Working with sets using LINQ

Wednesday, May 30, 2018 6:00:00 PM ( Add to calendar... )



2501 Blue Ridge Road Raleigh NC

Registration and event details...

Working with sets of data is something we developers do almost every day. Even something as simple as an array of integers is a set, and there are a lot of things we can do with that set. Usually we iterate over sets using 'for' or 'foreach'. In this presentation, we will be discussing how to iterate over sets without typing 'for' or 'foreach'.

We will start by looking at some normal example loops, and then we will slowly bring LINQ into the code, and see how that code improves with the usage of LINQ. We will end up reviewing at least one overload of every LINQ method available, and many examples will be shown.

If you have never used LINQ before, you are in for a treat! LINQ allows us to manipulate sets of data with minimal code, while benefiting from the fact that the methods in the LINQ namespace have been tested countless times by other developers. No need to reinvent the wheel!

Please note the content in this presentation assumes the audience is already familiar with lambdas and IEnumerable, which was covered in previous TRINUG presentations.

For experienced LINQ users, please note the presentation will be constrained to the following:
We will only be using LINQ-to-objects; Entity Framework will not be covered.
We will only be covering the method syntax; query syntax will not be covered.
To save time, some overloads to methods will be skipped.

Presenter: Derick Linkous

Registration and event details...

We have a special guest speaker for this Fundamentals meetup event! We are going to take a break from in-depth code analysis, and, instead, Taylor Desseyn is going to talk to us about recruiters. Even more importantly, Taylor is happy to answer any and all questions you may have about recruiters, such as:

How do recruiters price positions?
What should you look for when working with a recruiter?
How do you write a good resume?
Are cover letters still relevant?
How should one approach a job hunt?
What can make you the most attractive candidate during the interview process?

This talk is geared for for everyone from the recent software school graduate to the Software Architect who has recently found themselves back on the job market. This will be an open forum, and everyone is encouraged to ask Taylor questions!

Presenter: Taylor Desseyn is Senior Director of Recruiting for Vaco Technology in Nashville, and a good friend of TRINUG.
