Are you a .NET developer? If so, I bet you are familiar with CodePlex.com. CodePlex has been around for several years. There are thousands of projects hosted on CodePlex, some have a very active developer community working on project improvements.
There is lesser known Microsoft code sharing site called CodeGallery. What if you just want to share code? Do you have a project where you don’t need to collaborate with other developers? This is the main idea behind CodeGallery.
MSDN Code Gallery is your destination for downloading sample applications and code snippets , as well as sharing your own resources.
Code Gallery is a community-enabled Web site where you can share developer information and resources such as sample applications and code snippets. CodePlex is Microsoft’s open source project hosting Web site. Code Gallery is a pure storage site, with no project management capabilities. If you need to manage a live code project, CodePlex is a better choice.
Adding code to CodeGallery
The first step is create an account on CodeGallery. Next you will be presented with the Create New Resource Page’ screen.
Once your project is create you can change a number of settings.
