Brief Description

This site contains VS2008 sample code from the Devdiv International Academia CPE team projects.

Overview of Academic Samples

The Developer Division International CPE team has reached out to engage communities in the Academia space around the globe. In cooperation with Microsoft’s local offices, it has forged partnerships with local universities and Microsoft Student Partners to develop sample applications and Visual Studio add-ons, with the goal of helping students learn the newest Microsoft technologies. These student-developed add-ons/samples showcase Visual Studio 2008’s newest features as well as other technologies such as Silverlight. They also help Microsoft meet customer demands both for more samples, or and for samples specific to regional markets.

The first of several scheduled add-ons/samples have been completed, and are described below. Further information (including localized descriptions) and a download is available by clicking on the sample links below, and then navigating to the Releases tab on the respective page. More samples will be available in the coming months.

If you are interested in reviewing these applications and providing feedback to the students during the development phase, please contact the VS Samples with Academia Project Team. We currently have active projects in Mexico, Argentina, Spain, Italy, Germany, Japan and China.
