The following table contains a variety of no-code solutions that demonstrate the power of SharePoint Composites as discussed in detail in the SharePoint Composite Handbook. Just about every SharePoint Composite pattern is available in several different formats including demos, labs, walkthroughs, and tutorials.
Note Many of these solutions were developed for SharePoint 2010 and Office 2010, but they are still relevant and useful even though the user interface has changed.
