The Azure Data Market can be a treasure trove of data sets, containing everything from baseball stats to mortgage data to compiled census data. Some of these data are free, while some carry a fee for use, and all of them utilize the Odata protocol. In this session, we'll take a tour of the Data Market, review Odata, dig into the two ways of querying data, and discuss some strategies for not costing you a fortune. Although this session focuses on Windows Phone 7, there is a great deal of overlap to Silverlight and WPF developers, too.
