Which Visual Studio Version?

alanJHowland
Hi - I'm trying to work out which new version of Visual Studio I should be going for. I currently have an install of Visual Studio Standard 2008 and for various reasons I cannot upgrade it. I am a professional (i.e. not a student) not currently working in a team and predominantly need to write vb.net exes and services, and will be looking to publish android apps in the not too distant future. I figured 2012 Standard was the thing to stick to unless anybody has an opinion they can offer - price is an important factor and I don't particularly need MSDN.

    Hello Alan,

    You can buy Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 suites at Discounted Price in the following Web Stores below. However, if you can ask any of your friend (who is an Educator, Teacher or Student) to buy for you, both MSDN Subscription and Visual Studio at $499 - $599.

    There is another way that you can apply/sign up and get FREE development software from Microsoft either through Microsoft BizSpark or DreamSpark program. Microsoft BizSpark program provides technology, support, visibility, and community to promising Startups and Entrepreneurs at No Charge (Free). Microsoft DreamSpark program provides Students and Educators with software design and development tools at No Charge. I attached the reference links (URLs) below.

    Good luck with your current endeavors.
