Last line of note "Is a Resource Bound to an Entity or a Database?"

The last sentence in this note reads, "It will help you to really harness the power of the Web within you systems." The second to last word should be "your".

Getting Started with ASP.NET Web API section

ASP.NET Web API version 1.x is used for this sample (and likely the rest of the book). ASP.NET Web API version 2.0 has already been released with Visual Studio 2013 and the various ASP.NET project types have been merged into a single project type.

Please consider using ASP.NET Web API version 2.0 to give the book longevity and provide early documentation for the new features.

Note from the Author or Editor:
This was correct - I recently updated the sample to use the default Web API 2 templates.

The descriptions for "open' and "close" are backwards

Should be:

Requests that the issue status be changed to Open

Requests that the issue status be changed to Closed
