Description The DataContext acts a bit like a IDbConnection object in that it is the place where we "get things" in LINQ to SQL. It provides capabilities for executing commands, stored procedures and so on but it is also the object that provides collections of entities corresponding to relational tables and it has services for tracking changes to object and identifying which objects correspond to which rows in the database (by identity). In this video we have a quick look at it.
