Background: Modern software systems are commonly built on the top of frameworks. To accelerate the learning process of features provided by frameworks, code samples are made available to assist developers. However, we know little about how code samples are actually developed. Aims: In this paper, we aim to fill this gap by assessing the characteristics of framework code samples. We provide insights on how code samples are maintained and used by developers. Method: We analyze 233 code samples of… Expand
