Default Technical Editor: LINQ and TheBeerHouse Wrox Blox

I have a draft of a new LINQ and TheBeerHouse Wrox Blox written by Lee Dumond who you've probably seen here in the forums. This new Wrox Blox has a different approach than the excellent Migrating to LINQ to SQL in TheBeerHouse and ASP.NET 2.0 Website Programming Problem Design Solution (also written by a frequent forum contributor Doug Parsons).

If you are interested in LINQ and TheBeerHouse, think you'd be good at verifying all of the code and technical accuracy as well as providing other substantive feedback, contact me and we'll discuss the project. Lee's draft is about 45 pages long.

Hey guys and gals,

Just to put a good word in... I'd also mention that no prior knowledge of or experience with LINQ is required at all.

I would naturally assume that said person would be familiar with the original TheBeerHouse application, and have the requisite C# skills. I'd say that just about covers everyone who is reading this. ;) Everything else you'd need to know is explained clearly in the text.

I hope one of you smart programmers steps up. :D

Lee,

Unless someone has approached you 'offline', then i would be happy to at least look at your draft from a semi-editorial/proofreading standpoint. My only 'limitation' being that i wouldn't be able to work on any feedback in a fulltime like manner as we're just embarking on a new project w/c 08/11. however, if a second pair of eyes is required over the the next few weeks, then i'm here for you.

hope everything is is going well.

Lee,

apologies that i haven't been around much recently. latest project seems to have taken a life of it's own literally. just wondered how the final result has come out re the above?? also, thought i'd drop an ian cooper link (or is that linq) where he exresses his sympathies for the linq-sql team in the face of the EF bandwagon. you can catch it here:

http://codebetter.com/blogs/ian_coop...nq-to-sql.aspx

will catch up on 'stuff' at some point soon.

Thanks Jimi, good post! I agree with Ian... LINQ to SQL is a powerful tool in its own right and well suited to at least 90%+ of the apps out there. EF really is overkill for a lot of tasks, probably including the BeerHouse, but it will be cool to see it in action in the new book anyway.
