    I'm an IT & Computer Sciences student from Tunisia,

    Last summer, with the old version of Telerik site, I found a link in FAQ saying that Telerik is presenting lower prices for students if they are able to proove that their are really students.

    The problem is that I'm not able to find that link anymore and I don't know if Telerik is still giving those lower prices.

    If anyone knows, please tell me.

    Thanks in advance..

    I inquired about this and student discount is 10% off retail.

    Really, 10%?

    That's a lot of ramen I still have to shell out.

    Telerik has a good rapport among developers, from what I can see, and I was certainly interested in taking a closer look at the whole lineup (other than just the free offerings). But $1150 is just out of the question for me as a student. While Telerik is certainly welcome to make its own business decisions, I think having a robust student learning program would be great for them in the end as it gets people familiar with their products and ready to implement them in a production environment down the road.

    Microsoft may not be the end-all-be-all comparison because they don't develop components as much as full environments, but look at their Dreamspark program ( ). They offer Visual Studio 2008 and SQL server 2008 entirely for free. Microsoft Server 2003 Pro for free. Their Expression studio, again, free. Resharper, developed by a much smaller company, is $50 for students. Xceed, another component developer, provides 60% off to qualifying academic and research organizations (oh SNAP!)

    Now, Telerik certainly cannot make a living off of free, but even $400 bucks seems more reasonable than over $1100. I might be able to get that kinda cash. Heck, I would even develop Telerik-enabled apps and write about them as a subsidy; what some might call evangelism to the student body. Cool programs like that widen your base of customers and keep things moving (even if you don't offer your LATEST AND GREATEST). Maybe you guys are just raking it in and don't need us students, but I like to think that companies are willing to drop their bottom line to enlist new (albeit young) ranks into their fold of developers.

    I hope this at least offers some food for thought for Telerik in the future. Keep up the good work. It seems like you have a good thing going. Just sucks I cant afford to be a part of it.
