ASP.NET Web API makes it really easy to write Web APIs or HTTP services of any flavor. But the vast majority of remote service call needs for client and web applications is to perform CRUD operations – retrieve data, work with it on the client side, and send changes back to the server. You can easily support this in ASP.NET Web API with just CRUD-oriented RESTful services, or you can use ASP.NET Web API OData. In this session you will learn how to do both and will learn what the advantages of using OData are over your own custom CRUD services.
