GeneralCP not among sources for content for new Visual Studio Bing Code Search Add-In PinmemberBillWoodruff18-Feb-14 1:27 
I was intrigued by the link in today's CP Daily News to the new add-in for Visual Studio from Microsoft Labs, "Bing Code Search," that creates a code-search facility using code from "MSDN, StackOverflow, Dotnetperls and CSharp411."
 
A short very low-fi video demonstrating this add-in is here: [^].
 
The UI for this critter appears via IntelliSense (displaying initial results depending on context), as you type: I have yet to find any UI thing to click, or keyboard combo, to activate it on-demand.
 
I found it interesting that CP was not among the content providers listed for this wonder, but, I am not saying that to make any kind of "point," or imply any criticism of CP ! I trust that if it buys new Marshall Amps for Bob and the Hamsters, we'll see code on CP there in the future; if not, macht nichts.
 
I am just curious about what kinds of contractual arrangements (both legs of the first-born ?) Sauron of Redmond made with such (relative) Hobbits as StackOverFlow. I've never heard of CSharp411 before, and I have never visited DotNetPerls. I cannot imagine a worse source of mis-information than MSDN !
 
I find it interesting to think of what the next crop of homework-shirkers and wait-until-just-before-the-exam CP QA forum rescue-me posters might do with this add-in. Perhaps we should expect even more massive code-dumps ?

I installed this critter in Visual Studio 2013; it has yet to appear even though I have been typing what I thought were some tantalizing keywords as bait. I wonder if it's compatible with the EAP beta ReSharper I'm using now.
 
"Will wonders never cease?"
“But I don't want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked.
 
“Oh, you can't help that,” said the Cat: “we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.”
 
“How do you know I'm mad?” said Alice.
 
“You must be," said the Cat, or you wouldn't have come here.” Lewis Carroll
