New Sample Code, and Lots of It!

Monday, March 17, 2008

Whether you're making your first API call or troubleshooting some crufty SOAP plumbing, we hope doing so is about to get a whole lot easier. Today, we're releasing 140 new code samples — 20 each in 7 (programming) languages. We redesigned the samples so they'd be:

  • simpler — every file has a discrete task and a minimum of external dependencies to better illustrate how it works,
  • more comprehensive — all the API's representative methods and most popular client languages are covered, and
  • more reliable — the code is normalized across languages for less expensive maintenance and updates.

Give them a try and tell us what you think!

You can download the latest sources from the AdWords API website.
