  • MSDN Subscriptions Give You Access To Everything

    The Latest Collaboration Tools, Training And Resources For Coders

    Software developers are always looking for ways to create amazing applications. With a Microsoft Developer Network subscription, a computer programmer can build any kind of app out there.

    Microsoft Developer Network is a section of Microsoft in charge of developing a relationship with software developers and testers. This relationship is developed through websites, developer conferences, newsletters and other channels. Microsoft Developer Network's subscriptions are also sold on an annual basis, and the price varies from a couple of thousand dollars to twenty thousand dollars. Subscribers get new software every few months either on DVD or other formats. They can also download software, and this gives them further benefits.

    Licensing Made Easy

    Microsoft Developer Network's subscriptions are licensed, and they are sold in a per user basis. A user can develop, test, design or demonstrate her or his programs in any kind of device. They can also evaluate the computer program as well as simulate any kind of customer environment. This will allow users to diagnose any problem down the road. Microsoft Developer Network users can also run their programs on an Azure virtual machine, and this allows them to have greater flexibility when it comes to developing and testing applications.

    Elimination of Shared Subscription Costs

    Microsoft Developer Network doesn't offer a shared subscription. So you'll have to include each one of your team members individually as well. Microsoft Developer Network allows users to get access to any of Microsoft's personal and commercial software that are designed for the deployment of software development projects. Even if the product support service hasn't been extended, Microsoft Developer Network can still use the software package to test and develop legacy applications as well as transition to any new software.
