Microsoft All-In-One Code Framework - Developers' Pain Killer
2012 Plan

Create 200 new code samples

The team is creating 200 new code samples in 2012, including samples for hot technologies such as Windows 8, Windows Phone, Windows Azure, SharePoint, and so on.

Maintain and upgrade 400 code samples published two years ago

The team is refreshing 400 code samples published two years ago in partnership with CSS Escalation Engineers (the experts) at Microsoft.  Those code samples targeted Visual Studio 2008 or old versions of product SDKs. We upgrade them to Visual Studio 2010, the latest SDKs and product features.

Upgrade Sample Browser and Sample Browser Visual Studio Extension

In partnership with MSDN Samples Gallery team and Visual Studio team, we are upgrading All-In-One Code Framework Sample Browser and Sample Browser Visual Studio Extension to support 3500+ code samples, localized search experience, and favorite sample management.

Focus on Windows 8

With the upcoming Windows 8 release, the All-In-One Code Framework team is actively monitoring developers' frequently asked programming tasks in Win8 forums and communities.  We are preparing Windows 8 code samples to ease the transition to the Metro Style application development.  These code samples are going to be released on the same date that Windows 8 RTMs.

Create 30 Chinese How-do-I videos to visually demonstrate code samples

The team is partnering with China DPE to create 30 Chinese How-do-I videos.  These videos visually demonstrate selected code samples.  They are going to be released in MSDN China Webcast.
