Win a Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate with MSDN Subscription - Yet Another Contest

Few days ago, Microsoft sent me 3 Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate with MSDN Subscriptions –a value of $11,889 not for resale – and kindly asked me to give them away “to someone who has not yet experienced some of the fantastic benefits of Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate with MSDN”. Does that sound like you? Then, keep reading to learn how you can get the chance to win one of them.

What does it take to enter?
It is as easy as 1, 2:

1. Create and share a tip, trick, mini lesson, bug, favorite feature(s) or any other sort of helpful information that is relevant to SQL Server 2008 (or R2).

Be creative! You can create a short blog post, screen cast, video, etc, or just include it as comment in this post. In all cases, you must leave a comment in this post that contains or links your stuff. Plagiarizing someone else’s content is not a valid option – and it is wrong!

2. Send a tweet with the hash tag #FreeMSDN with a link to this post.

If you don't have a Twitter account, you can open one here:

What is Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate with MSDN anyway?

I will announce the winner on July 22nd in a blog/Twitter post.

I will give away the other 2 subscriptions in the following weeks, and blog/tweet the details. Stay tuned!
