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.
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!
