Microsoft has just released a refresh for their All-In-One Code Framework sample library that along with new features for searching, social media, download management, and lots of performance improvements and bug fixes also just happens to come along with 3500+ code samples of various Microsoft technologies from C# basics to Windows 8 programming.
Our team listens to developers’ pains in MSDN forums, social media and various developer communities. We write code samples based on developers’ frequently asked programming tasks, and allow developers to download them with a short code sample publishing cycle. Additionally, our team offers a free code sample request service. This service is a proactive way for our developer community to obtain code samples for certain programming tasks directly from Microsoft. — Microsoft All-In-One Code Framework Site on CodePlex
