  • LINQ to DAX project on CodePlex #dax #tabular #ssas

    Since its release, I've seen a number of scenarios where Analysis Services Tabular is the analytical engine of the reporting section in a larger system. In these conditions, at least a part of the queries sent to Analysis Services are DAX queries generated by code (as a consequence of user interaction or for other reasons). Since ...

  • Linqpad – bring the power of LINQ to SQL Server development

    One of my biggest laments about being a SQL Server developer is that the tools provided by Microsoft to do our thang compare woefully to the feature rich, (largely) bug-free, “it-just-works” impression that one gets from seeing the tools available to “other” developers in the Microsoft ecosystem (I’m thinking of our appdev brethren here, the ones ...

  • LINQ to SQL vs LINQ to Entities - decisions from ADO.NET team

    To make a long story short: the ADO.NET team is now responsible of ADO.NET Entity Framework (including LINQ to Entities) and of LINQ to SQL (the last one was originally in charge of the a separated team, tied to the C# compiler). There is an evident overlapping between LINQ to SQL and LINQ to Entities and since the first day, Microsoft said that ...

  • To join or not to join: that is the question (in LINQ)

    A comment received by one reader of Programming LINQ suggested me to underline a concept that is not so intuitive using LINQ, especially if you come from years of SQL coding. The idea is very simple. Two entities in LINQ might be related in the model. Whenever this happen, usually it is better to leverage on this existing relationship and not to ...

  • Kevin Hazzard on LINQ To SQL

    Kevin Hazzard did an outstanding job presenting to the Richmond SQL Server Users Group this evening on LINQ To SQL! I really like the ORM / code generation aspects of this new feature of the .Net Framework 3.5. Seeing it in action made me yearn (a little) for my application developer days. Kevin's VPC crashed a couple hours before his ...
