So yea… Microsoft has decided to make Visual Studio Community 2013 free for developers in order to promote open source development. The Visual Studio Community 2013 is a new, fully-featured edition of Microsoft’s Visual Studio and apparently it lets developers target any platform at all, including mobile and cloud. Best of all, it’s free!
So if you’re a developer, you might wanna take advantage of these free offers from Microsoft now.
