for almost a year now i was working with few open source technologies, and so habituated to it... this pushed me to create a REST based architecture for SharePoint 2010 using ASP.Net MVC 2/3...

Since it has lot many advantages to it

  • First off all; Get rid off the so called service calls {WCF}, nastier isn't so

  • We can pull down the all the objects complete to client side, design a beautiful client-side applications {or} we can make use of some amazing client-side framework to work with e.g. KnockOutJS, BackboneJS.

  • Most importantly, it's UI agonistic

    Share if you have anything similar to it...

SharePoint 2010 already exposes most of its content through its REST interface, implementation the ODATA protocol.

Prior to develop something custom from scratch, I would seriously look into what's available, even in the free foundation edition. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff521587.aspx

I've built heavy client side applications nearly solely relying on the ootb REST interface. Extremely powerful once on deep dive into it.
