There’s nothing new about the fact that Microsoft has a strong proclivity for promoting new technology and hence it supports the dedication and endeavors of its developers by releasing the Bing Developers Assistant for Visual Studio. This developer assistance incorporates Visual Studio’s Sample Browser and Bing’s Code Search extensions and helps developers to reuse codes and develop software. The codes can be reused and implemented across communities like MSDN, StackOverflow, Dotnetperls and even CSharp411.
The key features as mentioned include the following features:
1. A new boos has been added in the Visual Studio IntelliSense where a developer can get a relevant code snippet related to his/her current API and the code will pop up in the display screen instantly. This search result will be powered by Bing code search.
2. Sample Browser one-stop shop – You can search for your programming related requirements on the Visual Studio toolbar. The demo solutions will be provided fir a better understanding of code samples.
3. Offline search – this new feature let you search for code snippets from your local or downloaded sample projects and it doesn’t require internet fir the purpose.
4. Sample Browser provides one-click access to sample code: input your programming needs into the Visual Studio toolbar. Then a developer will fetch a selection of code snippets and code sample projects that can be downloaded or copied.
