Best Practices for Building Custom Open Data Protocol (OData) Services with Windows Azure
Whether you have a simple collection of reference data, are building a Rich Internet Application or building the data platform for a high-end website, you'll benefit from this code-heavy session focused on the key technologies (Windows Azure, SQL Azure, etc.) and best practices to expose your data and its associated logic as an OData service. This session covers the basics and quickly progresses to the nuts and bolts of creating OData services and running them on Azure. Once your data is available as an OData feed it can be consumed by any of the available OData libraries/tools for Microsoft .NET, Microsoft Silverlight, AJAX, Java, PHP and Microsoft Excel.
