Microsoft's free, centralized library of code "All-In-One Code Framework" samples has now been downloaded in excess of 1 million times in the past year alone, the company revealed.
Microsoft "All-In-One Code Framework" was made available through CodePlex on November 11, 2010. And, in just two months, since its release, the samples download hits the 30,000 mark on January 13, 2011.
The 1 million downloads of the All-In-One Code Framework all happened in fiscal year 2011, namely between mid-2010 and the summer of 2011 - 10 times over our last year's download number!, noted a member of All-In-One Code Framework team.
The brainchild of Jialiang Ge, support engineer 2 with Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) Community Support, the All-In-One Code Framework is one of the innovative projects celebrated as part of the software giant's "Global Microsoft Next" initiative.
"All-In-One Code Framework reduces the efforts of developers in solving typical programming tasks. Sample codes are made available for download; reducing the time developers need to create commonly used codes. Every single sample code reduces the efforts of developers worldwide," the member stated.
"We want to share our gratitude for the strong supports from our customers and the developer communities such as MSDN, CodePlex, CSDN, and cnblogs. We want to thank IT media such as Softpedia, Microsoft News Center, MSDN news flash and social media, for helping us spread the word," the All-In-One Code Framework project representative added.
"We also appreciate the seamless partnership with over 8 business groups in Microsoft such as Developer Support Division, PQO, MSDN Samples Gallery, MSDN Forum, Garage, Engineering Excellence, DPE, marketing team, etc. This would not have been possible without them."
"For Fiscal Year 12, we are preparing lots of new features, expansions, improvements and innovations around this project. We look forward to another outstanding year," the team promised.
