LINQPad lets you interactively query databases in a modern query language: LINQ
LINQPad supports everything in C# 4.0 and Framework 4.0:
LINQ to Objects
LINQ to SQL and Entity Framework
LINQ to XML
Note: LinqPad also supports .NET Framework 3.5 as well
And that’s not all – you can also query:
OData / WCF Data Services – including StackOverflow
SQL Azure, SQLite and MySQL Enterprise Server
Mindscape LightSpeed ORM
(Even old-fashioned SQL!)
LINQPad is also a great way to learn LINQ: it comes loaded with 500 examples from the book, C# 4.0 in a Nutshell. There’s no better way to experience the coolness of LINQ and functional programming.
Best of all, LINQPad standard edition is free..what are you waiting for…go give it a try!!!
