This morning the Microsoft Interoperability team announced the release of a new project that bridges PHP and.NET: the PHP Toolkit for ADO.NET Data Services. The toolkit makes it easier for PHP developers to connect to and take advantage of services built using ADO.NET Data Services. The PHP Toolkit for ADO.NET Data Services is an open source project funded by Microsoft and developed by Persistent Systems and is available today on Codeplex at phpdataservices.codeplex.com

You can see an overview and quick demo of the toolkit in the Channel9 video with Pablo Castro and Claudio Caldato, Senior Program Manager with the Interoperability Technical Strategy team.

For more information on the toolkit check out the Interoperability Teams blog post and phpdataservices.codeplex.com.
