Microsoft All-In-One Code Framework - Developers' Pain Killer -Releasing Sample Browser for Windows 8 – Get Your "Hands" on 5000 Amazing Code Samples

Sample Browser 1.0 for Windows 8 is released in the Windows Store today – a new relaxing way for Developers to search, browse, learn and share over 5000 code samples on any Windows 8 devices, including Surfaces! This is a collaborative effort from Microsoft All-In-One Code Framework, Windows 8 Content Publishing Team and MSDN Samples Gallery.


With the launch of Windows 8 in October, 2012, a new era of app use experience begins.  The Windows Store app platform and the amazing touch experience on Windows 8 release computer users from the “desktop”.  Developers love code samples, but they have been sitting in front of desktop for too long.  A Sample Browser Windows Store app can give them some time to sitrelaxingly in a sofa and continue to learn the beloved code samples. Mobile agility is another important consideration when we develop the app.  It has to support both online and offline mode.  It has to be easy to find and share code samples.

Today we released the first version of Sample Browser Windows Store app.  The best is yet to come.  The team has a big pipeline of cool features to be added to the app.  We will continue surprising the world of developers as months roll on.

Could a Windows Phone version of Sample Browser be our next milestone in the journey?  We will see.





My only wish is that the source for this app was released too. Anyway, I still think it's cool that this team just keeps chugging on, releasing samples every day, providing new and interesting ways to browse these samples and more. You go guys! :)
