Silicon Valley Code Camp : October 9th and 10th, 2010session
Creating and Consuming OData Services
About This Session
The Open Data Protocol (OData) is a REST-ful protocol for exposing and consuming data on the web and is becoming the new standard for data-based services. In this session you will learn how to easily create these services using WCF Data Services in Visual Studio 2010 and will gain a firm understanding of how they work as well as what new features are available in .NET 4 Framework. You’ll also see how to consume these services and connect them to other public data sources in the cloud to create powerful BI data analysis in Excel 2010 using the PowerPivot add-in. Finally, we will build our own Excel and Outlook add-ins that consume OData services exposed by SharePoint 2010.
