    I'm looking for good technical sources on using OData in Windows 8 projects. This one looks like it has a lot of good information!

  4. Albert Rugel says:

    I love the real world scenarios recipies approach. It will allow me to start using OData right away.

    After reading the sample chapter and downloading the sample code, I really believe that this book is a must have for any programmer thinking about using OData. Steven Cheng, great job.

    OData rocks. I think the best thing is the broad platform support. That and I love the server-side query and filter feature that's backed into OData. No need to write our own filtering/sorting/etc.  🙂

  6. the spatial features of the wcfds are far behind odata spatial features. They are light years behind entity framework 5 spatial features. both mr. cheng's book and the odata web page claim that wcfds5 will work out of the box with entity framework5. so far, wcfds cannot even pick a geometry column from an edmx…

    i'm sure ms will fix it, but untill then, i have turned to entity framework5 for dealing with ms.sql spatial data.

    Looks like a great real-world approach. Definitely interested in learning more about OData

    With so many resources online these days, I don't really read books cover to cover anymore.  I use books for reference when I need help on a specific topic.  However, this book has so many topics that could benefit me, I may end up reading it cover to cover even as a reference book.  Looks very promising!!

    would love one!

  14. zld says:

    ok

    I *** it

  15. mike rodda says:

    Sign me up, i'm particularly interest because of the introduction of MVC Web API and allowing odata requests. Plus i've been working alot with WCF recently.

  16. Wade Beasley says:

    I am interested in learning how to properly build OData services integrated with the Azure Platform.   I believe this is a great design but the how to is what I could use the help in doing.

  17. Mamta says:

    I am in! Count me in count me in.

    OData is a very big deal today and the more we know abt it as developers the better. This book would be a true blessing for those looking to learn.

  18. jmangelo says:

    What interests me most would be the OData support in the scope of WCF Data Services.

  19. I'd like to learn more about OData.
