SQL Server Samples are now live on Codeplex

Microsoft are in the process of retiring GotDotNet and replacing it with CodePlex.

CodePlex is a shared source website which allows you to upload projects and give access to other people to view/maintain.

The great feature is that it is using Team Foundation Server. This means that any one using Visual Studio with a Team suite client license can have full access to the Team foundation server. This is all done over HTTP.

A big step has been made by the SQL Server team in putting the samples on CodePlex (Thanks Ed) Whilst you can't have access to modify the source you can access all the component parts of the samples. This means you don't have to download all the samples to get the sample you want, and even better you don't have to download a complete sample you can access individual files, i.e. scripts, read me files, word documents etc.

So go and have a look http://www.codeplex.com/SqlServerSamples

This site also acts as a starting point for looking for other SQL Samples provided by the community.
