This is really cool:

Tired of querying in antiquated SQL?

Well, you don’t have to!  LINQPad lets you interactively query SQL databases in a modern query language: LINQ.  Kiss goodbye to SQL Management Studio!

LINQPad supports everything in C# 3.0 and Framework 3.5:

  • LINQ to SQL
  • LINQ to Objects
  • LINQ to XML

LINQPad is also a terrific tool for learning LINQ: it comes preloaded with 200 examples from the recently released C# 3.0 in a Nutshell.  There’s no better way to experience the coolness of LINQ and functional programming.

LINQPad is free and needs no installation: just download and run.  The executable is only 1MB and is self-updating.
