DLSI Gallery Manager, Spyros Sakellariadis welcomes new project: OData Library for Objective-C

As gallery manager for the Data, Languages, and Systems Interoperability (DLSI) gallery, I’m excited to welcome the OData Library for Objective-C project to the gallery and Outercurve Foundation. This is the gallery’s second OData project, the first being the OData Validation project contributed last August. With this new assignment, we expect to involve open source community developers even more in the enhancement of seminal OData libraries.

The Open Data Protocol (OData) is a web protocol for communications between client devices and RESTful web services, simplifying the building of queries and interpreting the responses from the server. Specifically, it specifies how a web service can state its semantics such that a generic library can express those semantics to an application; in sum, applications do not need to be custom-written for a single source. You no longer need one library to encode semantics for this site, another library to encode semantics for that site, etc. – a single generic OData library is sufficient. OData is key to building a world of interoperable devices and web/cloud back-end applications, and frees users from being restricted to applications from any one cloud provider. If you want to learn more about OData this is a good tutorial to get you started.

The OData Library for Objective-C makes it easier for iPhone/iOS and MacOS developers to create applications that connect to OData feeds on the web or in the cloud, adding to the phone ecosystem for Odata. Java developers have the community-supported OData Toolkit for Java (Odata4j), and Windows Phone developers have OData supported directly from Microsoft. Using these libraries, iPhone, Android, and Windows Phone developers can easily create applications that connect to any web service supporting OData.

The DLSI gallery in the Outercurve Foundation is dedicated to projects promoting interoperability at all levels of the stack. The OData Library for Objective-C was initially developed by a small group of developers within Microsoft and published under an open source license on CodePlex. In assigning the code to the Outercurve Foundation, the project leads are opening it up for community contributions and support. They firmly believe that the direction and quality of the project are best managed by users in the community, and are eager to develop a broad base of contributors and followers. I would like to call on iOS developers to get engaged on several fronts:

  • Spread the word and start writing apps
  • Make the library feel more native to iOS devs
  • Fully support the latest iOS capabilities (iOS 5)
  • Support the new OData v3 draft protocol

Microsoft is happy to collaborate with the Outercurve Foundation, which already hosts nineteen Open Source projects, as we continue to build and provide Interoperability solutions. With your support, we can all contribute to achieving a goal of device and cloud interoperability.

The male's solitary scenario reminded me exactly how lucky I was to possess my spouse. I had been instantly filled with a great feeling of appreciation for the love and companionship of my wife. Although we were dealing with some rough times, all of us always seemed to keep in mind what we really designed to each other.Now it looked like this lonely, aged guy had been moving?I wished everything would end up being alright for him. I did not see a “for Sale" register their yard, and so i walked across the street as well as peered in to their open front door. Indeed, all their issues were all boxed up. When he walked in to their living room carrying an additional box, I took this through him as well as placed it near the other people.After chatting for a little bit, he told me that their child and husband extended an invite to reside together upward northern; and the man had been eager to be round his grandchildren. I sincerely wished him or her best of luck and asked him in the event that he or she required assist with anything else.Then something miraculous happened.The man explained that everything ended except for something. He had to remain for two much more times since the people he or she had been having to pay to drain his heating system essential oil container were as well hectic! Immediately I volunteered to get it done free of charge!He was overjoyed.I had been stunned.He had been completely unaware of my personal eager need for heating oil as well as was simply happy to end up being departing earlier.Can you believe it?One moment I'm feeling sorry for myself because I figured we would freeze; and today my personal neighbor was providing me a full container associated with heating system oil - enough to last for a minimum of 3 pay day intervals!- Universal Laws and regulations in Action -The Law of Attraction: Like leads to attract like results. Being good draws in better issues to you; whilst negativity attracts much more unfavorable issues.The Legislation associated with Cause and Effect: Sowing as well as enjoying, juice, or even “what goes around appears,Inch and so on. You actually get back what you dish out. It is true that no bad deed will go unpunished. If you reside by the sword, a person die through the sword.The Legislation of Cause and Effect will go together using the Loa.

I was expecting.Without the actual instant requirement for atmosphere, I methodically doffed the Kevlar jacket, and hooked it around my personal arm. I looked at my cousin as well as waived my middle finger in the Kevlar vest.My buddy took out his regulator, smiled, and stuck their usb in the mouth area. Then he simulated poking himself in the butt with it. The which means was obvious: F*ck me personally! I'm by no means putting on Kevlar inside a heli-copter soaring over the drinking water!And neither will I.- A Bad Work day -Back towards the situation available: “Big Army Parachute, Not-So-Big Guy."I understood it was going to be a bad day time once the traditional body harness from the large parachute as well as opening shock made me seem like I had been becoming divided in half - in the genitals upward!After defeating on my numbed thighs, We instantly checked my personal canopy and noticed the next touch associated with my poor day.Reflexively, I stated out loud, “Imagine That" (my own “bleeding down" catch-phrase).For people who weren't indoctrinated in to the fantastic realm of hazardous duty, let me cue you within. Almost all providers possess a “bleeding down or even releasing pressure," personal catch-phrase they say to themselves to instantly relax.These catch-phrases function a vital purpose. They place you into a mindset that is conducive in order to success, particularly when you are “having a bad work day."Catch-phrases may:1.Remove damaging/time-consuming emotions out of your current scenario.2.

the house.Winters within this higher part (almost Georgia) of Florida had been cold.- One Thing after Another -I would be a low ranked enlisted man as well as newly married. We constantly battled to create ends meet. Then the actual spouse obtained let go through her job.Unexpectedly, a cold entrance came in through nowhere - way too early compared to all predictions. As well as, understandably, we were from heating oil and cash.I had never felt therefore helpless in most my life. Negativity entered my mind and that i simply sat on my entrance patio, sensation nearly disabled, bundled up in 2 sets associated with pants and three coats.My wife attempted to console me, but just about all I could think about had been how much of a failure I was. No issue how much I tried to plan away our spending budget, something usually appeared to pop up.Many occasions I'd need to get progress financial loans on my salary.
