Don Box on Visual Basic 9 (Beth Massi)
It looks like Don Box is really liking Visual Basic 9 and it’s unique XML support, LINQ query syntax, and lambdas. He even mentions in a post about authentication with REST that his dream stack would be doing direct XML payload programming with Visual Basic 9. There’s so many interesting things you can do with VB9 and XML. If you want to get started learning this great new feature check out the LINQ to XML How Do I videos on the Visual Basic Developer Center. You can also read some more articles I have on the subject on my blog.
