In this chapter, we have seen how to use the Web API for some more realistic scenarios involving two of the Kendo widgets that deal with managing data. We also quickly explored the ASP.NET Web API fundamentals as well as Entity Framework and OData. These tools, used together, can be a very powerful set and can create nearly any custom solution that you need.
The examples we just saw, both use a special attribute that Telerik has provided to help with model binding and server-side paging and filtering. It is nice to make use of special helpers like this when they are available. I encourage you to continue to explore these technologies on your own and see how you can create your own custom solutions on your own web pages.
