In my reading this morning I ran across a couple posts, (by Bill McCarthy and Jim Wooley) showing how to use the XML feed that Microsoft has released of the 2010 PDC videos. Pretty cool stuff using VB.NET LINQ to XML.
I wanted to try it out, but I didn’t really want to fire up Visual Studio and create a project. Then I remembered LINQPad, a very nice tool working interactively with LINQ.
I copied the code from Bill’s post, then pasted it into LINQPad and set the Language dropdown to “VB Program”.
Then pressed F5 to run it and out popped the session.html file onto the my desktop.
