C# Team LINQ to SQL Chat on May 21

There will be a C# LINQ to SQL Chat on May 21 between 11 and noon Pacific time. LINQ to SQL provides fully type-checked native C# support for querying databases.  Time zones details for the chat are here, a link for your calendar is here, and you can enter the chat room here.

If you know of other LINQ to X development projects that I should mention, please write me or reply to this post.
