Finally I am getting out my samples for my "Odata in the Real World" session which I presented at the Fall 2011 Richmond Code Camp, 2011 CMAP Code Camp and the November meeting of the Richmond .Net User Group. These samples contain 3 projects; one using Entity Framework, one using Linq to SQL and the last using POCO classes.

At last I am finally getting my code and slides out for the presentation I did at Richmond code camp XI “Creating custom Word and Excel Documents using Open XML Format”. Sorry this took so long but my life was disrupted when lighting hit the tree in front of my house. Another story for another day.
To get the libraries needed to run the attached code you must first go to:
At this link you will get:

Thanks to everyone who attended my Nova Code Camp presentation. Since the code samples are the same as Richmond Code Camp, you can check out that blog post on for the samples.
During my talk I was asked by several people about accessing data in a SharePoint List. Since I have very limited knowledge about SharePoint, I answer the question by saying I believe that it was possible with SharePoint 2010. On my way home, I remembered that SharePoint 2010 allows you to make a list an Odata endpoint. With this in mind using my odata sample could be used just change the Uri to point to the odata endpoint for the SharePoint List.
