What is your experience regarding pricing and costs for Microsoft Visual Studio?


Hi,

We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.

Please share what you can so you can help your peers.

The company buys and pays for the product. I think our purchasing department gets a fair price for it. But the actual price is something I do not have any idea of.

I am not the right person to advise on the pricing and the cost aspect as I just develop solutions using the tool. Although I am not directly involved in pricing, I have heard positive comments about the licensing fees. When our subscription expires, the finance department takes care of it. The most basic edition of Visual Studio, the Community edition, is available free of charge which is oriented towards students, individual developers and small teams.

The solution has a community version, which is free. It also has a paid version, with a few more premium features, but the free version is still really useful.

The solution comes at a good price and, even though there are free versions out there on the market, I still prefer this product because I like its interface.
