Why are there so few Code examples on your developer pages?

Question:

Why are there so few code examples on your developer pages? Wouldn’t it make sense to publish more code snippets that customers could copy/paste into their own projects?

Answer:

That would have been great! However, it isn’t as straightforward as it would first seem.

We did initially have a large collection of Java and C# code examples that customers could draw from. However, experience has shown that only a few customers can use them as-is, and most need to rewrite most of the code to accommodate their own libraries and such. What we have seen of our mentions on Stackoverflow and other places confirms this - one customer’s code is, for the large part, non-transferable to a different customer’s project.

We do have some some code snippets on GitHub. However, for the most part, our strategy is to provide examples of API calls rather than code snippets.
