Learning about databases in school included a lot of reading and I had never really been able to apply my knowledge in a practical setting. This changed my first week at Arcurve, when I was introduced to using the Entity Framework 6 with Microsoft SQL Server. I have learned to use LINQ (Language Integrated Query) to query my SQL database and access data. LINQ is easy to learn and is implemented directly in C#. I recommend LINQ for anyone who needs to work with a database in a .NET framework.
