Microsoft recently released a new version of Messenger Connect, allowing developers to integrate elements of Windows Live ID, Hotmail, Messenger, and SkyDrive into their own applications. Today, in a post at Inside Windows Live, they’ve announced a series of code samples released to the free, open source code repository GitHub. Included are three broad classes of code samples:
- Mobile client samples that show how to integrate user data into applications written in Silverlight and Objective C targeting the Windows Phone and iOS platforms.
- A desktop code sample that shows how to integrate user data into applications written in C#.
- Server-side code samples that show how to access user data using server-to-server calls when the user has given the application long-lived access to their data (for example, the application requested the wl.offline_access scope).
