I am not sure everybody has heard of this site, but it is sponsored by Microsoft, and allows students like us to download free software, software that may be useful for us in the future, in coding and other projects.

The website offers numerous software programs

SQL Server 2008 Developer

Microsoft Expression Studio 3

University Student FAQs

Are there any limitations on the way I use the Microsoft tools I get through DreamSpark?
This software is the complete and professional grade versions of the tools, but you must use them in pursuit of increasing your education, skills, and knowledge in either science, technology, engineering, mathematics, or design.
I just thought that I would let fellow students know that this is an incredible resource for us as students, and it can save some well needed money for other expenses as well.

    That’s an interesting selection of Microsoft products available on the site. They included SQL Server, Windows, Visual Basic, etc. I’d say that these are apps that most students don’t use. Was there anything about more mass appeal apps, like Office or Visio…? I’d be interested in that!!! 😉

    I agree with Theresa; however, I still think it’s pretty amazing to find a company like Microsoft giving away free stuff. Thanks for the link!

    That’s good to know about for the future. As far as Office goes, there’s Open Office, which is an open source version of the types of programs included in Office. Unfortunately, Open Office isn’t always supported…I know Angel doesn’t, or at least, didn’t last semester.
