Northeast Roadshow - Silverlight with WCF, WCF REST, and ADO.NET Data Services

20 minutes, 34 seconds


Right click “Save as…”

Once the initial allure of the cool graphics and animation capabilities of Silverlight has passed, you’ll probably say to yourself, "Hey, my app needs data too!" Well, this session delivers on that – not once, not twice, but thrice! We’ll look at accessing remote data services from Silverlight using a standard SOAP-based WCF service, then graduate to creating and consuming a RESTful service via the WCF REST Starter Kit, and end by accessing an Entity Framework model fronted by an ADO.NET Data Service.

Fully functional demo code is available at Code Gallery for those of you that want to tinker with the application as you watch the screen cast.
