Linq2Rest (https://bitbucket.org/jjrdk/linq2rest) is a library that allows users to query REST based web services using LINQ syntax. On the client side it decomposes LINQ queries and builds web requests which use the OData syntax to define the serverside query. On the server side it parses the OData syntax to rebuild the LINQ expression so that it can be used to query data against any LINQ compatible data source. The project is similar to Microsoft’s WebAPI, but supports additional features such as LINQ projections and integration with existing ASP.NET and ASP.NET MVC applications.


I started working with web development back when it was done with classic ASP, and moved into .NET development when the framework was released. Having moved through AJAX and mobile development As Lead Engineer I oversee development of distributed client applications for the financial sector, using ASP.NET and WPF. Outside work I organize the Dublin Alt.Net user group promoting better development practices and knowledge of open source alternatives to Microsoft tools. My website is http://www.reimers.dk/
