Getting Started with SQL Server Compact Edition 3.5

Tonight I will be presenting “Getting Started with SQL Server Compact Edition 3.5″ at the Bug.Net users group. If you go to my Arcane Lessons page and scroll down just a little, you will find a section called “Getting Started with SQL Server 2005 Compact Edition”. The subjects referenced there are still valid under Visual Studio 2008 / SQL Server Compact Edition 3.5.

However, there are some new features that make it worth our while to give SSCE 3.5 a second look. For example, did you know you can access Compact Edition using LINQ to SQL? My updated presentation and code demo will show you how.

Speaking of which, you can find my PowerPoint slides and Code Demos at the new Microsoft Code Gallery site I’ve setup:

Over the coming days I will also be adding blog posts to talk about the new features in version 3.5, and how to access SSCE from LINQ to SQL.

    Do you have updated instructions for using SQLCE v3.5 SP1 with Visual Studio 2008? I am trying to decide whether to use LINQ or Entity Framework as the structural framework for an existing local database. Thanks for any guidance you can provide. -Brian
