This might be something cool for Gale to put in the EECS Newsletter.

Our students have this ability.

> Your department's DreamSpark Premium account gives your students access to all of the latest Microsoft developer tools, operating systems, servers, and utility programs.  Per the End-User License Agreement, this software is available to students who are enrolled in STEM-D courses.  Depending on how your admin has set up your account, your students could likely lose the ability to download software for summer projects and self-learning once the semester ends.  I would encourage you to reach out to your students either directly or through your administrator and suggest that they download any of the software titles they will want to use over the summer now, before their account gets suspended.  The DreamSpark license is a perpetual, non-commercial use license so they are allowed to use the software legally after school ends and even after they graduate as long as it is not for commercial purposes.  Visual Studio 2013 Update 2 now supports the universal project type that allows a developer to create both Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 8.1 mobile apps at one time.  Visual Studio 2013 and Update 2 is currently available on DreamSpark.  We'd love for them to try it out.  If you have any questions about DreamSpark or app development, please feel free to contact me.
