OData Roadmap: Exposing Any Data Source as an OData service
Many of the popular OData services, including Netflix, Twitpic and Facebook Insights were built by reusing their existing web API with an OData service. Implementing this type of OData service is not simple but it’s also not as hard as you might think. In this session, you’ll learn how to build similar services that wrap different types of data sources using the WCF Data Services Toolkit. We’ll take a look at the implementations for several of the popular services as examples of how to use the toolkit to create new OData services.
