Surface 1.0 SP1
The Microsoft Surface SDK contains several types of samples:
Quick Starts are basic tutorials to help you create your first Microsoft Surface application for the Presentation layer or the Core layer.
Core Interaction Framework provides an extensive sample framework that helps you create controls by using the Core layer.
How Do I...? Examples are short, very specific examples that answer frequently asked questions about programming for Microsoft Surface.
Sample Applications are longer and usually show several different Microsoft Surface programming techniques in a complete application. You can use these applications as a starting point for more complete applications or just as examples of best practices in Microsoft Surface programming.
