Apparently url http://astoria.mslivelabs.com does not exist any more. This is where Project “Astoria” liveth. What happened next, is explained (also) in this presentation. Although terminology is somewhat confused or plain wrong but nevertheless a lot of useful hands-on information is delivered.

Just finished visitation of ADO.NET 3.5 site , aka Project “Astoria”.
It looks simple and pretty REST-full. And this is the BIG DEAL about it apparently.
It is based on the REST concepts. There is no SOAP in view. No WS-*, etc.
None of the key concepts Microsoft at large, and “his” blog-happy uber-developers have been trumpeting into our ears for last few years. And very loudly so with that. Now comes “ASTORIA” and the REST. All change!

Right now I am in Switzerland, in the city of Fribourg. 50 km north of Lousanne, towards Bern. I am having a very nice and somewhat lazy time here. My young friend Marija is closely watching my web log whereabouts and my internet developments in general.
If you have time please visit her vivacious blog at : http://missm05.skyblog.com, I think it is very interesting and worth visiting 😉
Happy new year 2007 !
