Session Info:
Applications today are expected to expose their data and consume data-centric services via REST. In this session we discuss ADO .NET Data Services or “Project Astoria” and see how we can REST enable your data. Then you will learn how to leverage existing skills related to 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 Then switching gears we will look quickly at consuming of REST services from any platform (including Ruby on Rails) using Visual Studio and the WCF REST Starter kit. We will conclude with a discussion on developing offline applications with the ability to sync back to the online data service. This is a very demo intensive session.
