As the school year winds down, now is the perfect time to get all of that free software installed before you head home for the summer. Employers love seeing developers actively work on projects, so Microsoft is giving it all to you for free. I’m currently working on a Web App Template, to wrap my website and turn it into a Win8 and Windows Phone 8.
1) Enter your school e-mail address
2) Microsoft will send you an e-mail w/ a code and instruction to download and install Visual Studio Pro 2013 for free (In the working world, this bad boy would run you $500)
3) Once installed, follow the link in your e-mail and enter to win an Xbox One Titanfall Edition (Play with me on Xbox LIVE as well – Dave Voyles is my gamertag)
