A few years ago I learned quite a few tricks when I downloaded the C# and VB.NET 101 Code Sample projects. Who has not used many of these code samples in VS projects?
Code samples always come handy. While videos and tech articles are always great and go deeper to explore new technologies, few things can beat LOTS of free code samples. I am trying to catch-up with LINQ and lately I’ve been experimenting with the 101 LINQ Code Samples.
Wouldn’t it be great to provide a set of Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010 code samples?
Of course! For Office/SP developers or for developers willing to explore coding possibilities with Office 2010, here’s something you may find useful.
We just released a set of Office 2010 – 101 Code Samples in VBA. We’ve compiled a good collection of Excel 2010, Office 2010, OneNote 2010, Outlook 2010, PowerPoint 2010, Visio 2010, and Word 2010 most popular samples and we’ve published them both as a packaged download and also as multiple individual code sample gallery pages where you can easily download individual code samples, copy paste, rate, and share with your friends.
Each code sample consists of approximately 5 to 50 lines of code demonstrating a distinct feature or feature set in VBA. Each sample also includes comments describing the sample, and setup code so that you can run the code with expected results or the comments will explain how to set up the environment so that the sample code runs.
We are already working on a set of SharePoint 2010 101 Code Samples. This package will provide a set of code samples including CSOM, SharePoint Online, REST, Azure, Web services and other most popular SharePoint 2010 code samples. This time we are extending an invitation to the community to request code sample ideas. What is that SharePoint 2010 code sample you’ve always wanted?
If you have suggestions for SharePoint 2010 code samples, or more Office 2010 code samples, you can leave a comment on this post or comment @ the SharePoint Developer blog for SharePoint 2010 code samples.
I’ve been gone for a while and I missed blogging so much!
I had a baby last February and I enjoyed five wonderful months on maternity leave with my little one.
It’s great to be back @ work and I am super excited about the upcoming Office release.
This time I will have the great opportunity to get involved with Office ITPro content as well. My role changed a little bit and my team now owns release & publishing of technical content related to Office products & technologies on MSDN and TechNet.
My team works with multiple technical product content teams @ Microsoft and we release content for Office, SharePoint, Exchange, Lync, and Office 365 for developers and IT professionals. We also manage a few MSDN and TechNet Center sites for these technologies including:
We also manage a few pages under:
There’s little I can share about the upcoming Office release at this point, but I can tell you I believe this will be one of the most exciting releases I’ve been involved with. I am dying to start creating and releasing content including getting started, what’s new, code samples, roadmaps, how tos, videos, and many others.
Developers and IT pros will have broader opportunities and possibilities thanks to many of the cool features and changes introduced in the next release.
I will be blogging more actively moving forward and will continue to share news related to Office, SharePoint, Exchange, Lync technical content for developers and IT professionals as soon as we get close to Beta and RTM.
