Just saw the following announced… we have a team of folks that will write code samples for free in order to save you time as a developer.  How cool is that?

Today, the Microsoft All-In-One Code Framework team announces an innovative “FREE” code sample request service for customers. This service is a proactive way for our developer community to obtain code samples for certain programming tasks directly from Microsoft. Our goal is to alleviate the frustration felt by developers.

Developers are encouraged to submit code sample requests dealing with  Microsoft development technologies to our site. At the same time, developers can now vote for newly submitted or existing code sample topics. Here’s the exciting part! Microsoft engineers will then pick the requests with the highest number of  votes and provide the code samples.  It’s all FREE!

The reason why this program was created was to provide personalized and connected services to  the developer community. This is a new way to listen to our customer needs and reduces the amount of effort needed for developers to complete their work.
