Free Azure for MSDN subscribers

Well, som terms apply:

Windows Azure Platform Benefits for MSDN Subscribers

And also a notice of warning:

You'll need your credit card to sign up. If you use more than the amount of services included with your MSDN subscription, we'll bill your card for these overages.

I'll probably take my chances on testing the cloud next year, despite the credit card warning...

All Windows Azure offers can be found here.

A month or two ago I investigated the possibilities for testing out Azure, but I somehow managed to not stumble upon the MSDN subscription option. Either this is a new offering, or my Google skillz were seriously off at the time.

A while ago one of my colleagues tried an Azure subscription, but he quickly realized that the prizing followed the idea of a hotel room. He was charged for the room per its availability, not for its actual use. Not very developer friendly.

For Azure to become a smashing success, it's important that developers get a chance to play with the technology — without committing to a significant bill. I really hope that this Azure subscription is a permanent offering, and that there are controls in place to protect developers from getting burnt on their credit card bills.

I'll start tinkering in the cloud next year — pretty soon that is!

Happy new year! :)
