Technology Samples

The following samples instruct on the various technologies in the .NET Framework. The intention of these samples is to represent a single technology or a few related technologies in an accurate and useful way for developers. However, the technology samples are not strictly useful as complete applications, and most have little or no purpose other than as an instructive tool. As such, these samples tend to exhibit limited error handling, and often do not reflect the object-oriented nature of the .NET Framework.

Technology samples are found in the following location in your .NET Framework installation.
