SilverlightShow (@silverlightshow) is a wonderful resource for daily Silverlight and Windows Phone 7 news, exclusive articles, tutorials, videos and training. I would encourage anybody interested in Silverlight, WPF, Windows Phone & other related technologies to check out the SilverlightShow content @ http://silverlightshow.net.
I guest-blogged my 3rd article for SilverlightShow yesterday:
OData seems to have a lot of promise in simplifying data access across multiple platforms by using fundamental technologies of HTTP and Atom/JSon. Using an OData source for data consumption/updates in your Windows Phone application? In this short article, we take a quick look at a data caching strategy in our Windows Phone applications while using an OData data source. While we talk about a Windows Phone solution in particular, these concepts are perfectly applicable when using OData on other mobile platforms.
Full article with screenshots, code samples & downloadable source code can be found HERE.
Also, SilverlightShow was gracious enough to compile my articles in a short eBook, with the overall theme of OData usage in Windows Phone & Azure augmentation of mobile applications. Details HERE.
