CodeBetter/ MSDN Ultimate Giveaways

UPDATE: I have added subscription donors/contributors who made this possible.
UPDATE: Our friends from
LosTechies also wanted to participate, and they donated a number of licenses (6 and counting). Thank you guys!

In an internal discussion we had, an interesting idea popped up. MVP bloggers we had at CodeBetter/ were generous enough to donate some of their MSDN subscriptions they were given as part of MVP program. Then the cool kids at LosTechies stepped in, and donated a number of licenses as well! Currently we have 13-16 licenses available, and this number may change depending on the demand and outside donations. The subscriptions are for one year.

We decided to give them away to successful/promising OSS projects that are in need of licenses. The rules are simple.

  1. The project has to be opensource
  2. The project has to be in need of MSDN license. We’ll trust your word in this.
  3. The selection will be based on our discretion, we’ll do our best on being fair.
  4. We may change the number of licenses available during the selection progress.

You can send me an email (tehlike (hat) gmail (hot) com) with title starting with [CDL/MSDN] (or [CD/MSDN]), or DM me on twitter (@tehlike) if you want to participate. You have to include

  1. Public URL for the project page
  2. Your name and your position in the project

It wouldn’t have been possible with the help of following fellow bloggers. Thanks to Codebetter Crew: Ben Hall, Ward Bell, James Kovacs. Devlicious Crew: Hadi Hariri, Christopher Bennage, Tim Barcz, Rob ReynoldsLostechies Crew: Eric Hexter, Jimmy Bogard, Keith Dahlby

Good luck!
