We are currently undergoing a massive proliferation of connected devices ranging from phone to the desktop, each with its own particular requirements. This can pose a significant barrier to developers looking to create great end-user experiences across these devices. The OData protocol (http://odata.org) was created to provide a common way to interact with data on any platform. In this session we'll go through a hands-on introduction to OData. We'll then take a look at the growing ecosystem of client experiences available to developers and end users when working with OData. Finally, we'll talk about what it takes to create your own OData service and learn how Netflix, eBay, Facebook, and others have used OData to create an Internet scale device experience in a matter of days.
