  • Hi guys, thanks for teaching us. If I understand you correctly, I can add an api controller to an existing mvc application model?

    not so nice presentation comparing to another chanel9 start up,regarding HTML5,ccs,javascript and winjs.there it was more practical,really what's new,and to what is used .here just a bunch of theory, nothing practical,like he learnt well his lesson,and that's it,doesn't understand the real thing,to compare.John you are talking about odata,like everybody play with odata everyday,that's not the way to mention about that,same as jquert,i did not see anthing about jquery,also you use the knockout.js,and nothing explained about that,even this is the new thing on client side.and Scott should stay at home,not just to fill a chair!

    I wanted to thank you guys for the comments at the end comparing it to WCF. That really helped clear up some cobwebs for me in a big way! Much better not to use a swiss army knife than a chainsaw to cut down a tree.....

    Scott....you are a TROOPER my friend....

  • Interesting info - however I'm curious about when you were showing the BooksController, and "viewed source" only to find no information other than the table and javascript.

    I would think that it would be better if search engines could see all that juicy content?
