Lambda expressions provide a concise, functional syntax for writing anonymous methods. They are super useful when writing LINQ query expressions as they provide a very compact and type-safe way to write functions that can be passed as arguments for subsequent evaluation. Lambda Expressions were introduced in the .NET Framework 3.5.
A lambda expression is identified using the Func keyword, which takes 2 or 3 generic arguments as parameters. In C#, <alias> => denotes a lamdba expression, whereas Function(<alias>) denotes a lambda in VB.NET.
