LINQ — Lambda Expression vs Query Expression

As you’re prob­a­bly aware of already, LINQ comes in two flavours – using Lamb­da expres­sions and using SQL-like query expres­sions: Both yields the same result because query expres­sions are trans­lat­ed into their lamb­da expres­sions before they’re com­piled. So per­­for­­mance-wise, there’s no dif­fer­ence what­so­ev­er between the two. Which one you should use is most­ly per­son­al pref­er­ence, …

Functional programming with Linq — IEnumerable.Aggregate

As I was learn­ing func­tion­al pro­gram­ming with F# I came across the List.reduce func­tion which iter­ates through a list and builds up an accu­mu­la­tor val­ue by run­ning anoth­er func­tion against each ele­ment in the list. Back to the more famil­iar C# ter­ri­to­ry, LINQ has intro­duced some func­tion­al fea­tures to C# and one of these is …

Controlling Type conversion in C#

Ever run into a sit­u­a­tion where your appli­ca­tion needs to use a type for its inter­nal work­ing but occa­sion­al­ly need to con­vert that type into anoth­er just so it can be passed to anoth­er appli­ca­tion which doesn’t under­stand some of the base types we have in the .Net space? Con­sid­er the exam­ple below, where the …

LINQ — choosing between Concat() and Union()

In Linq To Objects, there are two ways you can join two sequences togeth­er, using either Con­cat() or Union(), and as I was won­der­ing how the two dif­fers I came across this post: The main thing to take away from this arti­cle is: “If you care about the dupli­cates, Union() is nec­es­sary. How­ev­er, in …

Under the cover of i4o

I did some per­for­mance opti­miza­tion work a lit­tle while back, and one of the changes which yield­ed a sig­nif­i­cant result was when I migrat­ed some serv­er side com­po­nents (which are CPU inten­sive and per­forms a large num­ber of loops) from using ADO.NET DataSets to using POCOs (plain old CLR object). The loop­ing was then done …
