Ausblick

ASP.NET Web API is cool because, it lets you create services that can be consumed by an MVC 4 website or by an IPad app. Azure is nice, because it provides you with a free integration server for hosting your web service and your database server. And not to forget to mention the tight integration with Visual Studio and PowerShell for peace-of-mind development, testing and deployment.
