Do you know about the new project of Microsoft for students which is supplying about 4000$ worth software for students. The name of the project is DreamSpark.
DreamSpark is a Microsoft program available to academic organizations, mainly colleges and universities, although there is also a high school version. The participating schools pay an annual fee for the service, in exchange for which, applicable departments (computer science, computer engineering, information technology, and related fields of that organization) as well as students and faculty can acquire licensed copies of Microsoft software such as Microsoft Windows,
Visual Studio and other products. The list of software each college and university gets is dependent on the agreements made by that particular organization.
The software can be used in coursework and personal non-commercial projects. Students may continue to use these products for non-commercial purposes, even after they graduate. Even after graduation students may receive all free updates to the software, such as security updates and service packs, that are available to everyone through Windows Update
Software is accessed through a dedicated website run either by Kivuto Solutions Inc. or by the university/high school itself. The service run by Kivuto Solutions is called Kivuto Electronic License Management System or ELMS. Access is determined by the service agreement, but is usually given to students who meet certain requirements (must be currently enrolled in or teaching course(s) in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics).
Readers the people who are doing theirdegree in CS, IT or in any other fields related to computer are
