Microsoft Launches New 'Code Gallery' for Developers

Microsoft recently unveiled a new site for developers to download and share Microsoft-related code samples.

At the MSDN Code Gallery (http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/) developers can download official Microsoft code samples, download user-submitted code, access tutorials and create their own "resource" page to upload their own code samples or other offerings.

According to S. "Soma" Somasegar, corporate vice president of Microsoft's Developer Division, the new Code Gallery is a place where all of Microsoft's official code samples, blog tutorials and other resources can be found in one place, along with the new user-generated content.

"One of the most requested things we have heard is that developers want snippets, samples, sample applications and other resources," he wrote on his blog. "Code Gallery is, at its core, simply a community enabled site where we share developer enabling information and resources that will be integrated into the MSDN experience."

Users must agree to the particular license that goes with any code they choose to download. Creating a resource page requires users to log in with a Windows Live account. More information on how the site works can be found in its FAQ, here.

According to Somasegar, Code Gallery isn't for those with project management or collaboration on a code project in mind: "If you need to manage a live code project and collaborate with others on it, use CodePlex."
