Microsoft DreamSpark: Free Software For Students


Recently, I came across Microsoft's DreamSpark!

Taken from DreamSpark site: -

DreamSpark is simple, it's all about giving students Microsoft professional-level developer and design tools at no charge so you can chase your dreams and create the next big breakthrough in technology - or just get a head start on your career.

Who can get this right now?

We are kicking this off in 11 countries/regions, giving DreamSpark to millions of students in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, China, Germany, France, Finland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and Belgium. If you are not residing in one of the countries listed keep checking back, we will be adding more countries throughout the year.

Does that mean that I might not get in?

Possibly, if you are not residing in one of the countries listed, not attending an accredited university or not a member of one of the student organizations that we're connected with. But keep checking back, as we're working on adding more ways to verify your student status all the time.

    Awesome stuff! Man, Microsoft are pretty generous these days. First the free software for IEEE students, now this! The XNA Game Studio is pretty interesting.

    By the way, you can have access to free developer products.. albeit the "express" versions. So, if you are not the lucky ones located at the above countries, you can still start developing here:
