Microsoft Developer Tools – Soon to be Free to all Students

In our Faculty of Business, Technology and Sustainable Development and hence the School of IT we have a MSDN Academic Alliance licence. This gives the Faculty’s students and staff free copies of Microsoft developer tools, operating systems and servers, amongst other software.

However, Bill Gates has just announced DreamSpark which is the free availability of Microsoft developer and designer tools to ALL students. Great news, but sadly Australia is not on the initial list of countries. We are promised this for later in the year.

Thanks for the heads-up to Karo for the blog post.
