Link: Bing Developer Assistant

For a while now, I’ve been using Bing Code Search in Visual Studio, and recently Microsoft did a rather substantial update where they combined the extension with the Visual Studio Sample Browser and created the Bing Developer Assistant.

It has three core components:

  1. It extends IntelliSense, giving you suggestions on how to use the code you are working with.
  2. It has the features of the sample browser, so you can find code samples and snippets easily via the toolbar.
  3. Offline search, so the other plugins will work even if you’re offline if you have samples downloaded.
