Visual Studio 2013 was released in October 2013 and remains Microsoft’s flagship application development suite.
Visual Studio (VS) came into play in the mid-nineties when it brought together development tools such as Visual Basic, Visual C++ and Visual FoxPro (whom I had the pleasure of working for many years ago).
There are free offerings of Visual Studio components (Express Editions) which generally offer a subset of the higher editions. The recommended way for organisations to licence Visual Studio is through an MSDN subscription.
Each of the four MSDN Subscriptions above are available through all the VL programmes (Open, EES, EA, etc.) as well as full packaged product (FPP) and online through Microsoft. We covered Server and Cloud Enrolment (SCE) in a previous blog but it’s worth having a re-read because it offers discounted licences of Visual Studio for organisations that can commit to a minimum 20 Licences of any combination of VS Ultimate with MSDN and VS Premium with MSDN. Renewing MSDN subscriptions is far cheaper than the initial purchase because you are only paying for the software assurance (SA) component and it is possible to step-up or step-down between MSDN subscription levels. There are a couple of gotchas: even if you have a technician who simply installs the MSDN software for the development team, they will require an appropriate MSDN subscription. And the second gotcha, just to reinforce the non-production use limitation: with the MSDN subscription you can download the Windows client OS.
There are circumstances including demonstration and user-acceptance testing, where the software can be used by non-MSDN subscribers. Team Foundation Server supports the whole lifecycle of the software development process including version control, reporting and project management and is licenced in a server + CAL model. The cloud version of Team Foundation Server was named Team Foundation Services and that has now become Visual Studio Online; a complete application lifecycle management tool integrated with Windows Azure and available from any web browser.
The clue was ‘integrated with Windows Azure’ because Azure is the billing platform for VS Online. As you can imagine, there’s a lot more detail to licensing Visual Studio 2013 and there are likely to be changes early in 2014 so please listen into our monthly licensing spotlight calls where we cover this and other topics (you can view archived calls here). Type in your email address and we'll send you this handy guide to the Microsoft sites and resources we find most useful. Os presentamos un manual para cifrar archivos de texto plano completos o tambien partes de un texto.
Una buena forma de obtener seguridad en nuestras comunicaciones (a parte de los protocolos HTTPs, redes privadas virtuales y un largo etcetera) es a traves de PGP integrado en nuestro correo electronico. En esta ocasion, vamos a cifrar con un programa muy conocido por los programadores, el Notepad++.


Lo primero que debemos hacer es descargar este programa gratuito desde este enlace, e instalarlo.
Ahora procedemos a seleccionar el cifrado que queramos, nosotros hemos elegido uno de los mas seguros, AES256-CBC (el mismo que usamos en nuestro manual de OpenVPN). Para descifrar el archivo de texto, el metodo es el mismo, pulsamos en NppCrypt y esta vez en Decrypt tal y como podeis ver en la imagen. Esto le anade un plus de seguridad ya que si no sabemos el cifrado que ha sido usado, no podremos descifrarlo, ni siquiera con la clave correcta. Segundo gracias por la informacion porque llevo tiempo usando notepad++ y ni me habia fijado que tenia la opcion de cifrar.
NppCrypt usa OpenSSL por lo que con tener la libreria y un comando linux a mano, tambien valdria (parece ser), aunque lo mas facil y rapido es usar el propio Notepad++ para no complicarte. Muy interesante este complemento, me preguntaba si acaso es posible que al abrirlo en mi propio equipo sea legible y no tener que digitar la contrasena para descifrado, pero si el archivo es copiado y abierto en otro equipo este cifrado. No, es un editor de texto pero con opciones avanzadas, pero no es capaz de ver eso…solo de interpretarlo en bruto. As there is so much more to VS 2013 than just a set of development tools, the licensing can be a little daunting.
Visual Studio has since grown in capability much like the Office suite but it remains at its core a development application.
There are also two MSDN subscriptions that don’t include Visual Studio but are a good fit for individuals involved in the development and test process without needing the VS Integrated Development Environment (IDE). Buying Visual Studio Professional as a standalone is available through Select Plus, Open, FPP or online and is an option if the user doesn’t need access to development platforms (Windows, SQL Server, etc.) or the other benefits of MSDN. Typically, MSDN subscriptions through volume licensing will be coterminous with the existing VL agreement.
The user can then install, run, design, develop and test their programs on any number of devices.
Despite the fact they’re not doing any development or testing, they are installing the MSDN software (this is counted as using it) and must be licensed.
The good news is one server licence and one user CAL are included with Ultimate, Premium, Test Professional and Professional level MSDN subscriptions. There is a limited amount of free VS Online use with the basic plan (5 users and up to 60 build minutes per month which is actual computing time required to run your build) but after that an Azure subscription is required.
For the MSDN subscribers we’ve been talking about, there’s no charge; they get free access to Visual Studio Online.


En muchas ocasiones hemos querido cifrar nuestros archivos de texto, ya sea para enviar a nuestro confidente por un canal inseguro, o simplemente porque queremos mayor seguridad. Otra solucion es meter todos los archivos en un contenedor TrueCrypt y enviarlo ya que nuestros datos estaran a salvo.
Para cifrar todo el contenido del fichero, no seleccionamos nada, si queremos cifrar solo una parte, seleccionamos el trozo de texto a cifrar. Introducimos la contrasena (cuanto mas larga y compleja mejor, para evitar ataques de fuerza bruta). A continuacion nos saldra el mismo menu que para cifrar, tambien debemos seleccionar el tipo de cifrado utilizado para el cifrado que hemos hecho anteriormente. A good guide can be downloaded here and I’ll try to summarise the main points and products in this post.
The Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) is a subscription programme that builds on VS and extends it to include access to Microsoft products (current and previous), technical support, training, forums, developer access to Azure and Office 365 and much more.
The Test Professional edition is a specialist IDE designed for software testers and it will not support development. If they are installing production licences as opposed to the MSDN licences, they wouldn’t need a subscription. Team Foundation Server and CALs can also be purchased standalone through volume licencing or retail channels. You can think of VS Online more akin to Office 365 however because it’s software as a service (SaaS); you don’t need to be concerned with Azure storage, databases, VMs, etc.
The big restriction with the software obtained through MSDN is that it cannot be used for production use. In other words you can’t get Windows Server 2012 through MSDN and use it for the company infrastructure server; only for developing and testing. There are always exceptions and one is that users licenced for MSDN with Visual Studio Premium or Ultimate get a licence of Office Professional Plus 2013 for production use on one device (see below from the PUR).
