Project Phoenix Helps Non-Profits and Underemployed Developers

Phoenix rises from the ashes Unemployed or underemployed software developers have an opportunity to receive/earn a Visual Studio Ultimate license with MSDN among other great tools and learning opportunities. To qualify, the developer proposes a software project for a 503c non-profit, school, or church. See Arnie Rowland’s Like a Phoenix rising from the ashes post for full details about the program. The community benefits by receiving a service (software development) that might not otherwise be available to them.

Programs like these can only happen through the generosity of the MVP’s, and the numerous sponsors that have teamed up donating their time, talents, and/or products and services to the project.
