We often get asked "how can I buy Visual Studio and MSDN?".
And since last time we posted on this was back in 2005 I thought we should update this guidance.
If you look at the bottom of the MSDN NZ Visual Studio page, you’ll see a section called "How to Buy".
It lists there all the local LARs (Large Account Resellers) who are all well and good, but can seem a bit OTT if all I want is a copy of MSDN.
That is one reason why we have now got an agreement with Developers Inc – a specialist developer tools licensing company who also sell developer tools for many "other" companies
You can contact Developers Inc by calling 0508 338 462 or email Richard Vowles.
You might be keen to know too that if all you want is a single license that if you purchase a single license of MSDN you qualify for Microsoft Open License – meaning nobody should be paying full retail for Visual Studio with MSDN.
If you are starting out building a product, you’ll want to check out the Empower Program which provides an awesome starting point for companies looking to get their first products out in the next 12 -24 months.
