Any craftsperson wants the best tools to work with. A painter wants the best brushes. A musician wants the best instruments. And after many conversations with Developers and Testers, I know that you want the best tools to code and QA. Sometimes cost is can be a factor, and to that end, there’s never been a better time to consider Visual Studio tooling.
Visual Studio prices are due to change with the next release, but along with current savings, there are some great offers out there. If you’re using Visual Studio 2008/2010 Professional without MSDN, you can save your organization up to 35% adding MSDN, or up to 15% moving to Visual Studio 2010 Premium. For those looking to automate manual testing, you can save your organization up to 20% on Visual Studio Test Professional 2010.
Whether you’re an existing MSDN subscriber looking to renew or upgrade, or a new developer or tester, now is a great time to take advantage of these offers.
