Also learn how to conquer unreliable wireless networks by implementing RESTful principles to ensure your messages are both compact and fast. Then take those WCF REST services and use them to retrieve database tables, rows, and columns in order to drive the behaviour of your mobile applications. Finally, learn how to cache data to Isolated Storage to ensure that your WP apps keep working regardless of network conditions.”
