I had the pleasure of presenting REST services and AJAX at Canberra again. It was a fun and sunny day that started at 4am in the morning, and packing a sleeping mr4 into the car and drive down. Mr4 and my wife went to see the Cockington Miniature Gardens for the day, leaving me to geek out with fellow crazy SharePoint Saturday-ers.

Some of the comparisons I've made in the talk:
- In the SharePoint 2013 Azure Workflow model, you can't deploy workflow actions. But you are given an out of the box action that will let you call web services. So building custom services is still a good way going forward to implement functionality that you can then reuse.
- Re-use everywhere:
- Workflow Web Request action
