This e-book collects the 4 parts of the series Producing and Consuming OData in a Silverlight and Windows Phone 7 Application together with slides and source code.

The Open Data Protocol (OData) is simply an open web protocol for querying and updating data. It allows for the consumer to query the datasource (usually over HTTP) and retrieve the results in Atom, JSON or plain XML format, including pagination, ordering or filtering of the data.

In this e-book, you will learn how to produce an OData Data Source and consume it using Silverlight 4 and Windows Phone 7. You will gain deep understanding of OData and how you may use it in your own applications.
At the beginning of each chapter you may find a link to the source code used throughout the chapter examples, as well as to the chapter slides. All source codes are available inside the ebook package.

In case the original article series gets updated by its author, a revised e-book edition will be released and emailed to everyone who already purchased the ebook.
