How to Save on Microsoft Developer Tools

  • October 14, 2011
  • By Developer.com Staff

If you develop applications for Microsoft platforms, you probably already know about the Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN), which provides access to Microsoft application development tools -- for a fee. However, you may not know about the other Microsoft programs which could help you access similar tools for less money or even for free:

  • DreamSpark -- If you're still a student, this program lets you get Visual Studio and other software for free.
  • BizSpark -- For privately held companies that are less than three years old and have less than $1 million in revenue, this program also gives you tools for free. When you grow too large to meet the requirements, you get the tools at a discount.
  • WebsiteSpark -- This program is basically the same as BizSpark, but it's for Web development companies with less than 10 employees.
  • Microsoft Partner Network -- If you don't qualify for one of the other programs, check out this very broad program which offers a variety of free and paid resources.
