Yesterday Soma announced The MSDN Code Gallery where Microsoft employees and the community can post samples and resources they want to share. This is a great site to use to share code, docs, videos, or any other content without having to manage a source-controlled project that takes code contributions like those on CodePlex. You can use the MSDN Code Gallery for those “fire-and-forget” samples or you can get creative and publish a landing page, enable discussions and even track issues.
Check out the Visual Basic samples up there that have been published so far. I’ve started publishing the How Do I video code samples up there and have enabled discussions so it’s easier to ask questions and hopefully the community will join in since my bandwidth is much smaller than all you folks. :-)
