Webcast Added to the VBeth Webcast Series

Thanks to all who attended Friday’s webcast. Unfortunately VOIP in the new version of Live Meeting isn’t what it’s cracked up to be. And even though I set up a conference call, a lot of people couldn’t dial into the toll-free number from other countries. I apologize, and the rest of the webcasts I’ll set up through the phone line like we used to do in the old version.

I heard a lot of great feedback from the people that were on the phone (thanks for the encouraging emails!) so I decided to re-do this one this Friday at 11am PST. Yes, that’s right, I’m doing two webcasts in one day because I love you all so much ;-) And if the Live Meeting gods are mean to me again, I’ll just create a series of How-Do-I videos!

Here’s all the new details (and I’ve updated the previous announcements about it with the new information):

Live From Redmond: VB9 – Introduction to LINQ in Visual Basic
3/14/2008 11:00 AM Pacific Time (US & Canada) | Duration:60 Minutes
LINQ stands for Language Integrated Query and it allows you to query over things like objects, databases and XML in a standard way with a new syntax available in the latest versions of Visual Basic and C#. In this Webcast you will learn how to get started writing LINQ queries using the simple but powerful query syntax available in Visual Basic. We’ll walk through a variety of basic queries as well look at aggregates and groups over different data sources. You will also see how writing queries over XML using specific Visual Basic syntax like XML literals and axis properties can help you be much more productive when working with XML.
