The MSDN Sample Gallery is the gateway to Microsoft’s software development technologies, from close-to-the-metal programming with Win32 to higher levels of abstraction with XAML and WinRT.

Now there’s a Windows Store app that brings the Sample Gallery to your Start screen: Sample Browser. Search thousands of code samples or browse through the convenient categories. The MSDN sample repository includes more than 400 Microsoft official code samples for Windows Store apps, over 1200 Microsoft All-In-One Code Framework samples driven by developers' real-world pains and needs, and various product samples and community samples.
