Overview of Academic Samples
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 link on the Resource links tab. 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 PRC.
LINQ to SQL Query Builder
: The LINQ to SQL query builder has comparable functionality to the Visual Studio SQL query builder (entities selection, properties selection, relationships recognition and so forth), but the source is classes instead of tables and the result is a LINQ to SQL expression (code) instead of pure SQL (string).
Chinese Lunar Calendar
: This sample application provides users running Simplified Chinese Windows XP with Chinese Lunar Calendar information in a transparent window on the desktop. Please note: those running other language versions of XP will only see a Western Calendar.
Chinese User Validation Sample
: The User Validation sample is typical of a web application for validating users in a web portal. This particular sample validates the user’s Chinese Identification Number.
