The talk will begin with Teresa showing us how to use Expression Blend to edit templates and modify the look and feel of existing controls.

User Group/Event: Dallas ASP.NET UG (11)
Recorded On: 2/23/2010
Abstract: The WCF Data Services (a.k.a. ADO.NET Data Services or code name Astoria) framework consists of a combination of patterns and libraries that enable the creation and consumption of data services for the web. This is implemented in done in a standards based (OData) RESTful way serializing the data to JSON or AtomPub. In this talk we will introduce the WCF Data Services platform, talk about the basic underpinnings of the technology. Then we will build a simple Entity Framework Data Model and using WCF Data Services expose it to a simple web application. Through this process we will discuss retrieving data via URI and LINQ to ADO.NET Data Services.
