Whenever Telerik puts something up on Telerik Labs we hope that some early adopters will try it out and give us feedback. We had an amazing demand for the Telerik OpenAccess WCF wizard and got tons of feedback. The most overwhelming piece of feedback is the name of the wizard: so as of this CTP, the wizard is now renamed the Telerik Data Services Wizard. We made some key enhancements in this build for usability. The big thing is that you no longer have to...

    O# or The Fall Conference Speaking Schedule

    digg_url = "http://www.stephenforte.net/PermaLink,guid,8d9a457e-c203-43d0-bedd-27336578c997.aspx";digg_title = "O# or The Fall Conference Speaking Schedule";digg_bgcolor = "#FFFFFF";digg_skin = "normal";digg_url = undefined;digg_title = undefined;digg_bgcolor = undefined;digg_skin = undefined; Every fall, the kids go back to school, the weather gets cooler, Munich kicks off its annual Oktoberfest festival, and the fall conference season heats up. It seems that I always miss Oktoberfest. I had friends who lived in Munich earlier this decade and each year my trips to Mt. Everest got in the way. Now that Telerik has a Munich office, I got to go to Oktoberfest (O#) with geeks. I can see the eyes rolling by the non-technical readers of this blog (basically my Mom is the only non-technical person who reads this blog), however, geeks can drink a lot, judging by how I had to...

    digg_url = "http://www.stephenforte.net/PermaLink,guid,a7d16ce5-33d4-475b-bb5a-32d38c2a99b4.aspx";digg_title = "Create a SQL Azure CRUD Application with Telerik OpenAccess and the WCF Wizard";digg_bgcolor = "#FFFFFF";digg_skin = "normal";digg_url = undefined;digg_title = undefined;digg_bgcolor = undefined;digg_skin = undefined; Over the past few weeks I have showed how to use Telerik OpenAccess with the WCF Wizard. I think that this wizard is a crucial piece of technology since I hate to write plumbing code myself, it takes me too long and I usually make mistakes. I wish that SQL Azure would provide RESTful and WCF services wrapped around your database tables and views with just a check box in the Azure management page. But alas, I can dream. Until that day arrives, you will have to code the services yourself. So I decided to do it with OpenAccess and WCF (and of course the Wizard.) First you...
