Please join us for an interesting session presented by Stephen Forte
Applications today are expected to expose their data and consume data-centric services via REST. In this session we discuss what REST is and have an overview of WCF Data Services and see how we can REST enable your data using the Open Data Protocol (OData). Then you will learn how to leverage existing skills in Visual Studio, LINQ and data access to customize the behavior, control-flow, security model and experience of your data service. We will then see how to enable data-binding to traditional ASP.NET controls as well as Silverlight. We’ll look at other consumers of oData including SQL Server PowerPivot for Excel, wrapping up the session by talking about consuming other OData based applications in .NET as well talk about a non-Microsoft client. This is a very demo intensive session..
