SQL Server 2016 Developer Edition Free

w/ Visual Studio Dev Essentials Program

I ran into this bit of info today and thought I’d pass it along. I don’t know that I need (or will ever need)  this edition or the Visual Studio Dev program, but it seemed a bit exciting.

The article does warn that the free offering cannot be used in production environments, whereas Express can be.

I haven’t decided what I should do yet – I have never even opened up Visual Studio. But I have sent a note  to the smartest person I know on the matter – Joe Sweeney – in hopes for some guidance.

I shall report back.
