What’s new in 3.5 by Steven Smith

The class was a pretty good introduction to the new stuff. Attached are my notes. 

There are new controls (listview, datapager to add paging support, linq datasource (bind to any linq enabled data model…(sql right now, but in the future amazone, flickr, text, xml, etc)

The visual studio enhancements are nice (javascript intellisence, multi-targeting support ( 2.0 or 3.5 your choice), control extender support

Other things in the class: routing engine (similar to url rewriting), mvc

Regarding Linq: I asked about the overhead of using linq and he didn’t know.  It’s basically an object relational mapper and a little better in performance than a dataset.  All this translates: I won’t use it.  Currently you can’t use edit/update/delete unless you fetc the entire row. (unless you use an anonymous type…you can get one from i guess).  One good thing.  It doesn’t run the query until it needs it (which is why paging support is so much better)
