Providing technical information from a slight slanted standpoint.

imageMy first REAL attempt at trying, using, getting, and displaying data from an OData feed, it’s not as hard as I thought, check it out!

Last year I wrote a couple of conference apps for Windows Phone.  In trying to be smart, I based the speakers and sessions off of XML files.  Cool eh?  Except I had to scour the conferences website for all that data.  Speakers name’s (make sure you spell them right!), bios (don’t cut’n’paste the wrong ones!), social media links (did you find all of them?), etc.  You get the idea, there’s a lot of work data mining that stuff and sore fingers of just mind numbing cut’n’pasting!

Well, for my next trick Smile,...
