Developer Learning Program – First Meeting

Leave a comment


Apparently our first meeting instituting the developer learning program was a huge success. We gave a quick overview on LINQ and presented a live demo where we wrote a linq query, did some conditional statements, a few joins, and showed off some of the LINQ extensions. It was well received by both developers and management and really seemed to open up some eyes. Be it for better or worse, this may get us too much attention!

 

The only issues we really ran into is that it is really a change in thinking for our devs. We do things the old way. We pass all db calls through a webservice and into a data layer where stored procs are called and returned via a dataset. Honestly, LINQ is near useless in this type of environment. We explained how this methodology is pretty “chatty” and will result in slower response times. Unless you are posting data frequently or have a real time app, you can generally pull larger sets of data one time and then filter the data via LINQ. This is where it will fit in with our organization.
