via Jeremy Bytes: Getting More LINQ-y.
As I explore functional programming more, I’m learning how I haven’t been using LINQ as much as I could be.
Last time, I talked about how I was excited about what I saw in Mathias Brandewinder’s book Machine Learning Projects for .NET Developers (Amazon link). I made it through the first chapter, and I’m absorbing lots of stuff about machine learning and F#, but I also came across something simple that I hadn’t thought about before:
The world of data offers new choices and MongoDB is the most popular alternative to SQL databases today. In this one hour webinar, we’ll look at the reasons developers turn to NoSQL databases and what makes MongoDB special. Then we’ll look at how to manipulate MongoDB data from C# efficiently and safely by leveraging LINQ.

Swift has generic Collections and Sequences as well as some universal free functions to work with them. What is missing is a fluent interface that would make working with them easy¹ – like list comprehensions in many languages or LINQ in .NET. The operations should: require no typecasts, be easily chained, work on any sequences, be performed lazily where possible.
via XML Parsing with jQuery – Tech.pro.
Using jQuery to parse XML is vaguely reminiscent of LINQ in the recent .NET frameworks. That’s a good thing, since LINQ made parsing XML in .NET vastly easier than previous techniques. With jQuery, when you receive XML from a callback, you’re not actually getting raw text, you’re actually getting a DOM (document object model) that jQuery can traverse very quickly and efficiently to give you the data you need.
Let’s start by looking at the example XML document we’ll be parsing today. I made a file that contains most things you’d see in a typical XML document – attributes, nested tags, and collections.
