LINQ (Language-Integrated Query) in C# is a simple way to query and update a Collection of data. We can use LINQ for example to filter, sort or even merge data in collections. The simplest way to use LINQ is:

from [itemIdentifier] in [collection] where [condition] select [itemIdentifier]

Below are examples of LINQ usage:

class Program {
  static void Main(string[] args) {
    List<Student> Students = new List<Student>() {
      new Student(Fandi, Physics, 2001),
      new Student(Agung, Physics, 2001),
      new Student(Jon, Physics, 2000),
      new Student(Arthur, Physics, 2000),
      new Student(Hendera, Chemistry, 2001),
      new Student(Kurniawan, Chemistry, 2001),
    Console.WriteLine(Year 2001 Students:);
    IEnumerable<Student> year2001 = from s in Students where s.AdmittanceYear == 2001 select s;
    foreach (Student s in year2001) {
    Console.WriteLine(nPhysics students:);
    List<Student> physics = (from s in Students where s.Major == Physics select s).ToList();
    foreach (Student s in physics) {
    Console.WriteLine(nPhysics students year 2001:);
    IEnumerable<string> physics2001 = from s in Students where s.Major == Physics && s.AdmittanceYear == 2001 select s.Name;
    foreach (string s in physics2001) {

For that example, we need a Student class:

class Student {
  public string Name { get; set; }
  public string Major { get; set; }
  public int AdmittanceYear { get; set; }
  public Student(string name, string major, int year) {
    this.Name = name;
    this.Major = major;
    this.AdmittanceYear = year;
  public override string ToString() {
    return Name : + Name
      + nMajor: + Major
      + nYear : + AdmittanceYear
      + n--------------------;

LINQ return value is an IEnumerable. IEnumerable is a form of collection which is best be used with foreach loops, in forward only reading. But it can also be converted to List as seen on the second LINQ example above. The third example, shows that LINQ can also retrieve a single member of the objects.
