I’ve spent the last few days talking with the data access folks at Microsoft. They’re working on the next set of features and I’ve given input based on feedback I got from clients and students in the past two years. There may be some things I forgot about, however.


If you have an ADO.NET feature request, especially in the context of: “what problems are left unsolved in the data access space after .NET 2.0”, please feel free to write it here. Or if you’re a former student or client, you can probably infer my new email address and write me mail.


If you’re not particularly vocal about this issue now, prepare yourself for a featureset dictated by folks more vocal than yourself. It may be a hassle (and time-consuming) to provide feedback, it’s even less useful to sit and grumble afterward.
