OData Basics - At the AZGroups "Day of .NET" with ScottGu
Recently I had the pleasure to speak at the 7th Annual AZGroups.org 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 http://azgroups.nextslide.com, 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?
Scott Hanselman is a former professor, former Chief Architect in finance, now speaker, consultant, father, diabetic, and Microsoft employee. He is a failed stand-up comic, a cornrower, and a book author.
For those asking about a downloadable version, NextSlide.com (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.
I enjoyed every minute of this lecture. I re-watched certain parts so I can play with LinqPad and compare results :)
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,
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.
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.
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! =)
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
