Channel 9 Interview: XML Literals Performance and Namespaces Explained

I just posted a Channel 9 interview with Avner Aharoni, a Program Manager on the Visual Basic Team, as he dives into LINQ to XML and XML Literals in Visual Basic 9 and explains namespace bubbling and the performance gains you may see using XML Literals. This is a good interview to pay attention to if you are struggling with how XML namespaces work in Visual Basic.

One funny note here about the interview — I was having a hard time pronouncing Avner’s last name so when I introduced him I was so focused on getting his name pronounced correctly (which I did) that I messed up and said “feature related to SQL to XML” instead of “feature related to LINQ to XML” Doh!
