From the latest startups to the largest enterprises, cloud services are where new projects are born and new ideas take flight. We want to ensure students around the world aren’t left behind, so today we launched Microsoft Azure for student developers.
This new offer for students in 140 countries around the world gets you started with the services you need most to develop in the cloud at no cost and with no credit card required.
Microsoft Azure is available now for validated DreamSpark students at no cost and no commitment, with no time limit and no accidental charges. You can upgrade to paid services later if you want, but you can host your web apps and websites today with the power of the Microsoft cloud behind you, and it won’t cost you anything.
When combined with Visual Studio Community 2013 for coding and the GitHub Student Pack to add more services and tools to your project, Microsoft Azure provides an incredible free launchpad for students. And we’ve got great free online courses for students to jump into web development at Microsoft Virtual Academy.
We’re very excited to bring this offer to students. It’s a great step forward in enabling everyone to explore web development, whether you’re in Silicon Valley or Jakarta. We can’t wait to see what you create.
