SQL Data Services Adventure - Day 1

Finally. I’ve been looking forward to this for a while now. Cracking open the VPC I created just for this, get VS2008 setup, re-familiarizing myself with SDS, and starting “Thriller”, I’m off on my adventure.

I decided the best way to get up to speed is to complete the Hands On Labs I started at PDC. You can get the same Azure Services Training kit at http://www.microsoft.com/azure/trainingkit.mspx. Unpacking everything and getting ready is pretty straight forward, and to be honest this is really good training, I’d suggest downloading and following along.

Jumping right into the Intro to SQL Data Services Lab things are fine until “unhandled exception (409) Conflict”. What the heck is that, double, triple, quadruple checking my code, yup, it’s fine. So, heading over to the SDS Forums a quick search returns the following post about how things have changed and Authorities are different now.

Now I’m up and running and got the first Exercise, “Using the REST Interface to Access SDS” complete. This is cool, can’t wait for the next one.

About the author

James James is a five time and current Microsoft MVP in Client App Development, a Telerik Insider, a past Director on the INETA North America Board, a husband and dad, and has been developing software since the early days of Laser Discs and HyperCard stacks. As the Founder and President of the Inland Empire .NET User's Group, he has fondly watched it grow from a twice-a-month, early Saturday morning group of five in 2003, to a robust and rambunctious gathering of all types and sizes of .NET developers.

James loves to dig deep into the latest cutting edge technologies - sometimes with spectacular disasters - and spread the word about the latest and greatest bits, getting people excited about developing web sites and applications on the .NET platform, and using the best tools for the job. He tries to blog as often as he can, but usually gets distracted by EF, LINQ, MVC, ASP, SQL, XML, and most other types of acronyms. To keep calm James plays a mean Djembe and tries to practice his violin. You can follow him on twitter at @latringo.

And as usual, the comments, suggestions, writings and rants are my own, and really shouldn't reflect the opinions of my employer. That is, unless it really does.
