Named similarly as Doug Purdy's PDC 2010 session on oData, this OpenData for the Open Web session tries to explain how WCF Data Service with oData offers an accelerated path towards building a public API.

Web based API have and will continue to play a huge role in making sure that the web opens up even more. You will learn on how to take part of this movement in your own projects utilizing oData protocol.
