One of the best ways for me to learn something is to experiment, play, or interact with it. Thanks to Microsoft’s interactive SDKs, I now have more tools for learning how to work with their products.
So after seeing this, I was curious to see what other interactive SDKs Microsoft has put out there for us. In addition to Virtual Earth, I’ve found interactive SDKs for:
I hope to see more of these interactive SDKs out there as they introduce more web products. Although MSDN pages are great as references, I find it more valuable to be able to go through the action and then see the equivalent code. These interactive SDKs really work well for those of us who prefer the hands-on approach to learning.
And these interactive SDKs aren’t the only neat things I’ve been playing with in the Live realm. Ever since I got called out for using that other search engine that starts with a “G” in the presence of the Microsofties, I’ve switched to Live Search to give it a fair chance. In the process, I’ve also found other Live tools to use, so don’t be surprised if my next few posts get into some of the cool things I’ve found.
