Leveraging OData end-points in JSON format with JQuery

I’ve been looking for a good way to leverage the Entity-Framework model that I already have in-place so I don’t have to dream up an entire new way of piping my .NET data over to Javascript. It turns out that using WCF Data Services works awesome! (I haven’t tried using EF RIA Services yet, but I bet it will work awesome too.) Using JQuery and .NET’s OData endpoints is fun!

Why Silverlight is right for the enterprise…

Silverlight offers huge benefits to shops that already leverage .NET languages to develop web and windows-based applications. It’s strongly-typed, it supports a wide array of dynamic and interactive controls, it enables outstanding visual effects, its data-binding capabilities are second-to-none, and it draws the user in to the web experience.
