Reactive Extensions for Windows Phone 7 makes asynchronous programming with REST services quicker and less painful. E.Z. Hart demonstrates how you can quickly and easily put together a custom lightweight web service you can install on a PC to control your system from your Windows Phone 7 phone - no IIS or WCF required. He'll take you start-to-finish through the process of creating a web server, creating a REST API, and creating an installer. He'll also walk you through creating a new Windows Phone 7 Silverlight project to consume the API. The end goal - using your phone as a remote control for iTunes.

E.Z. is an MCPD who started 14 years ago writing C++ applications for Windows 3.1, and has worked in every iteration (and language) of the Microsoft stack since. His primary focus, though, has been ASP.NET, Silverlight, and more recently, mobile applications."
