LINQ to SharePoint

Bart Desmet is continuously posting very good and deep-dive stuff about a variety of .NET technologies, most of them not covered in other blogs. This time he got my attention with a posting on LINQ and SharePoint. Reading it further, it is actually cool stuff.

Here is what he writes: "Today, I'm happy to announce another fun project of mine, of which an alpha is to be released on CodePlex in the next few weeks: LINQ to SharePoint. Again, it's meant as a (good) sample of implementing query providers and to serve developers when consuming SharePoint data from lists. Essentially, the implementation provides a translation of LINQ queries to CAML, together with a "list schema to entity mapping tool" called SpMetal."

Read on guys J. It seems that SharePoint and .NET 3.0 are coming closer together.
