C# – Where to start REST web service in C# or ASP.Net


I am thinking to start writing some REST web services as a way to provide data. I guess that when my REST web services are available, then some of my web applications and console applications will be able to use REST web service as data service to get, add, update and delete data to databases. In addition to that, I would like to add authentication feature to identify any request.

My question is that where should I start? I saw Microsoft ADO.Net Data Services. Not sure if this is a good start place? Are there any examples available?

Check out the REST in WCF MSDN site and the starter kit. Good article here too.
