OSC sample templates
Accompanying the Outlook Social Connector 2013 Provider Reference are several provider templates in C++, C#, and Visual Basic. You can download the templates at Outlook Social Connector 2013: Provider templates.
The provider templates are available for use when you build a provider in the language of your choice. To minimize the download size of the provider and to minimize provider load time, you should build a production provider by using C++. If you are developing a provider for users who have .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 or a later version of .NET Framework installed on their computers, you can also consider writing a managed provider using C# or Visual Basic.
