Kinect for Windows samples are now available under an open source license.
You can find everything on CodePlex: http://kinectforwindows.codeplex.com/.
Why is this now on CodePlex?
- Easy Access -> we will continue to release our sample applications as part of our Developer Toolkit. However, that’s a large download & install that can be cumbersome if you just want to quickly view or access code on the web
- Reuse The Code -> we’re releasing all the samples under an Apache 2.0 license so that you can take the code and reuse, remix, etc. Also, we’re using a Git repository so it’s easy clone & fork if you want
- Get Feedback -> we will use CodePlex’s built-in feedback & discussion tools to get community input on the samples. We want to hear from you to understand what we can do better with the samples
- Faster Updates -> we will be able to update samples more quickly on CodePlex (compared to Toolkit releases).
