This is another brain dump of notes fromPrairieDev Con. this talk is Mark Stafford’s OData talk


Yeah, REST is not great for doing querying. The excel retrieval is brilliant. Also being able to easily dig into queries just using a browser is great. I have some concerns that allowing querying against the database like this opens up the possibility of allowing users to run super inefficient queries and bring your system down. Users can’t be expected to know what queries are going to do that so some sort of throttling or caching would be useful.
