I had a great time at the INETA sponsored combined Sarasota SQL Server and Sarasota .NET User groups' meeting last Wednesday evening. I presented the Entity Framework and LINQ using the latest bits, which came out 2 days prior to the presentation. It made for some interesting moments as I barely had enough time to convert all of my demos over to the latest bits. Yeah, I know, I should have just went with the old bits, but the smart me was sleeping and the bold me took the wheel :)

I've attached my slide deck and some demo code that I used for the presentation. The code has been converted to work with the Visual Studio and .NET 3.5 SP 1 beta bits. Everything is "as is" as some of the demo code I wrote on the fly at the presentation.

There were about 40 people there for the presentation and it was a very lively and interactive group. A lot of good questions were posed and thought he flow was pretty fast it seemed to be well received.
