Recently I had the pleasure to speak at the 7th Annual event in Phoenix, colloquially known as the "Day of ScottGu." Scott talked for about 4 hours or so, then Jeffrey Palermo, then myself. Tough acts to follow! You can view ScottGu's and Jeffrey's talks at, and mine is here via direct link, and also embedded below.

I spoke on OData and it was a great crowd. We had a blast. I'd encourage you to check out the talks, as there's lots of good information and demos. Thank you to Scott Cate for putting the whole thing together, and be sure to check out Scott Cate's VS Trips and Tricks videos, as he does tiny screencast versions of Sara Ford's VS tips. Is three Scotts enough for you?

I have no idea about developing on .NET but I always check out your presentations because you make it all so fun. You are a great speaker, which I know you know but I thought I would let you know anyway.

Thank you ScottHa for the kind words, and coming to the #AZGroups 2010 Event. Hopefully we'll have you back again in the future.

For those asking about a downloadable version, (who has volunteers a ton of time/labor/equipment to make this recording happen) is working on it, and should be available sometime later this week.

It would be great to have a downloadable version because the plyaer keeps on buffering on my 25mbit connection...

I enjoyed every minute of this lecture. I re-watched certain parts so I can play with LinqPad and compare results :)
2 questions:
1. Who else, other than Netflix, is jumping on the OData bandwagon? (btw, was the name O'Data invented in the Ireland office of Microsoft? :))
2. Will you be at the Sunnyvale web camp this Thursday? Would love to see another one of your lectures in person (I saw the first on in SO Dev Days in SF last year).

Keep up the great work,

Yes, the presentation was fantastic. With the TDD enhancements to VS2010, I personally believe the Gu should change his shirt color from Red to Green, since the VS2010 build and test indicator is most definately green! :D

For those not being able to play the presentation, I put together an MP4 containing both speaker and screen streams at this location:

With that said, rwe'd really appreciate some feedback on things that are not working, buffering issues etc... If you have 5 minutes to spare, it would really, really help us out. Feel free to shoot me an email directly at s-l-e-g-a-y-AT-n-e-x-t-s-l-i-d-e-.-c-o-m.

We're currently adding more diagnostic code to our player, but any live user willing to give us some feedback would be very helpful as well.

Thanks in advance.

Great and funny stuff.

You should have your own talk show.

It is gr8 that you can educate us with the bleeding edge technologies. But can others within Microsoft pickup and take it to the next level in terms of how to spice it up for realworld scenarios?
Things I am thinking of are
- Can I front WIF to my exposed ODATA.
- Are there going to be issues with Idem Potency when doing PUT/POST/DELETE etc.

This is how presenting should be done, witty and informative as always :-) keep up the good work

I especially came here to your blog to thank you for this video. I found it directly on the azgroup website, thankfully now its available for download for us guys with speeds such that we keep it download at night and watch it next morning.

Mostly, I got up to speed about OData and WCF Data Services in about 2 days and Im getting ready to use it in production pretty soon! =)

Love the talk. I had one of those "ahh now I get it" moments. I got very excited...

I have a question though. I'm using OData through SQL. It works fine. But how do I override the default of "GetEveryRecordEver"?

What I'm thinking is I want to override the SQL call if the query is something each like GetCustomer by Id.

Thanks and all the best
