I recently got a few Microsoft DreamSpark invites, and since I’m already an MSDN subscriber, I couldn’t find a good use for those invites. So I’ve planned to give them away on a weekly bases. Although DreamSpark is available for free, you wont be able to get access to it unless you’re educational institution is a part of it! My university is an MSDNAA partner but not a DreamSpark one, so I know how that feels. But this is your chance to change your luck!
Here’s what is DreamSpark right from their FAQ:
if you’re a current university or high school student, you can download professional Microsoft developer, designer, and gaming software through DreamSpark at no charge. Yes, students get to download software at no charge.
And this is a list of software that you’ll get for free, for 1 year!
Here’s how it’ll work. You just have to retweet** this line on Twitter:
RT @imhassan I’ve entered the Microsoft DreamSpark invite competition at www.ithinkdiff.com #ITD
- Of course, following me on Twitter is a requirement.
- No limits on the number of entries that you can submit.
- You could get an advantage*** for something in exchange, depending on what the offer is. ;)
- Contest is open to anyone around the world. All the winner will need is a valid Windows Live ID.
The contest will run for a whole week, starting at the time of this post. That means it’ll span from Thursday, April 23 to Thursday, April 30. No timings. Just remember the days. Good luck to you all! If you don’t win once, don’t worry, you might win next week.
