“Lambdas! Lambdas! Lambdas! Lambdas! …” If you hadn’t heard, Visual Studio 2015 will support the use of lambda expressions in the debugger windows. We’re all very excited to deliver on this longstanding TOP customer request. When LINQ was introduced in 2008 it was a game changer for the way .NET developers think about and code... Read more
