Var Keyword in C# - .Net 3.5 Orcas Feature

In .Net 3.5 Orcas consist of a keyword called var. This keyword can be used to reference any type in c#. For example,

var name = "raja";
var age = 26;
var single = true;

The compiler will infer the type of the "name", "age" and "single" variables based on the type of their initial assignment value

string name = "raja";
int age = 26;
bool single = true;

What are Extension Methods?

Extension methods allow developers to add new methods to the public contract of an existing CLR type, without having to sub-class it or recompile the original type. Extension Methods help blend the flexibility of "duck typing" support popular within dynamic languages today with the performance and compile-time validation of strongly-typed languages.

Extension Methods enable a variety of useful scenarios, and help make possible the really powerful LINQ query framework that is being introduced with .NET as part of the "Orcas" release.
