Mastering LINQ with C# and .NET

Learn .NET’s secret sauce for querying collections and databases

What you’ll learn

  • Create and execute LINQ queries on data sets
  • Perform ad hoc data queries on in-memory and external data sources

  • Query databases

  • Write your own LINQ operators
  • Use advanced libraries and approaches for data querying
  • Basic knowledge of C#
  • Basic understanding of C# collection types (e.g., array, list, etc.)
  • Understanding of extension methods


This is a comprehensive course on a technology called Language Integrated Query (LINQ). LINQ is a core part of .NET that is responsible for helping us iterate through, filter, search, transform and manipulate collections, be it local objects (arrays, lists, etc.) or remote objects (e.g., databases).

This course covers:

  • What LINQ is, how it’s implemented and what interfaces it uses
  • Main LINQ operators (there are lots of them!)
  • Using LINQ to query databases (LINQ to Entities)
  • Technologies with LINQ support (e.g., LINQ to XML)
  • Parallel LINQ (PLINQ) and how to use it to parallelize your queries
  • Extra topics (e.g., LINQ tool support in Rider/ReSharper, using MoreLINQ)
Who this course is for:
  • Beginner and experienced .NET/C# developers
  • Anyone interested in modern approaches to data query
  • Database administrators interested in writing data query C#
