The Microsoft All-In-One Code Framework is a free, centralized code sample library driven by developers’ needs. The goal is to provide typical code samples for all Microsoft development technologies, and reduce developers’ efforts in solving typical programming tasks.
The team listens to developers’ pains in MSDN forums, social media and various developer communities. They then write code samples based on developers’ frequently asked programming tasks, and allow developers to download them with a short code sample publishing cycle. Additionally, the team offers a free code sample request service. This service is a proactive way for our developer community to obtain code samples for certain programming tasks directly from Microsoft.
Different from traditional feature-focused code samples, Microsoft All-In-One Code Framework provides scenario-focused code samples driven by customers’ real-world programming pains and needs.
There are 3,500 code samples are from MSDN Samples Gallery, including 800+ Microsoft All-In-One Code Framework samples, 480+ official Windows 8 Beta samples, 150+ official Windows Azure samples, 600+ WPF, ASP.NET, Windows Phone 7, Silverlight samples, and more. Hopefully this new Sample Browser will ease the way that developers discover and use samples
