Hanselminutes Podcast 97 - ADO.NET "Astoria" Data Services with Shawn Wildermuth
My ninety-seventh podcast is up. It this episode I talk to the ADOGuy, Shawn Wildermuth, about ADO.NET Data Services codenamed "Astoria." We discuss Astoria and how it's *not* just exposing your database to the Internet. We delved into REST and how Astoria and Silverlight are a good mix for the right application.
If you have trouble downloading, or your download is slow, do try the torrent with µtorrent or another BitTorrent Downloader.
Do also remember the complete archives are always up and they have PDF Transcripts, a little known feature that show up a few weeks after each show.
Telerik is our sponsor for this show.
Check out their UI Suite of controls for ASP.NET. It's very hardcore stuff. One of the things I appreciate about Telerik is their commitment to completeness. For example, they have a page about their Right-to-Left support while some vendors have zero support, or don't bother testing. They also are committed to XHTML compliance and publish their roadmap. It's nice when your controls vendor is very transparent.
As I've said before this show comes to you with the audio expertise and stewardship of Carl Franklin. The name comes from Travis Illig, but the goal of the show is simple. Avoid wasting the listener's time. (and make the commute less boring)
Enjoy. Who knows what'll happen in the next show?
