  • Basic knowledge of Object Oriented Programming

In this course you will learn everything you need to know about LINQ Operations and how to perform them.

We start off from the most basic operations and build towards more complex ones.

Both Query and Method syntax is covered in the course.

And of course, all the source code will be provided for each of the sections in the course, in a nicely ordered and structured fashion, so that you can use the code to practice and learn.

The course is aimed at students that have some coding experience in general and with C# in particular, a little bit of OOP knowledge is required, for some of the lectures.

The topics that we are covering are:

  • LINQ Basics with Query syntax – we will start with the most basic operations with query syntax and build towards more complex ones  

  • Grouping Operations with Query syntax – grouping allows you to group the items in a collection by a given common key, for example to group a list of people by their age. You will learn 5 different types of group operations  

  • Joining Operations with Query syntax – joining allows you to join two different collections by a common key, so its similar to grouping, but it just does it on two collections and not on one. You will learn the 3 major types of join operations and a few of their derivations  

  • The Let keyword – that allows you to create internal variables inside your queries  

  • LINQPad – short introduction to this nice piece of software that you can use while you study LINQ to better visualize the results of the operations  

  • LINQ Basics with Method syntax – here we will reiterate what we have already learned about LINQ but this time you will leran how to perform these operations with Method Syntax. Method syntax makes some of the operations easier to implement than Query syntax  

  • Grouping with Method syntax

  • Joining with Method syntax

  • Filtering, Converting and Ordering with Method syntax – while by this point you will already be familiar with the basics of these operations, there are things that need to be considered while performing these operations with Method Syntax. You will learn what are the common pitfalls.  

  • Cool Stuff in LINQ – Finally we will end with some cool operations that we can easily perform by using the LINQ Methods, how we can generate different sequences of numbers, characters, random numbers and many other things. More interesting things like Set, quantify, partition, concatenation and aggregation operations will also be explained

There are tons and tons of tutorials on Youtube and other websites, so why would you have to pay for this course?

The answer is very simple, in this course you will get every single lecture systemized in such way, that it ensures smooth transition between the previous and the following topic. Guaranteeing great learning experience.

There are no stones left unturned, everything is explained in great detail (but not too much, that would be boring :) )

The video lectures in the course are produced with the highest possible audio and video quality. No static noises to disturb you while you watch the videos, no blurry images, everything is crystal clear with crisp audio!

Who this course is for:
  • People that want to improve their skills with Collections
  • People that want to learn the Ins and Outs of LINQ
