Here’s an early Christmas gift for student developers.  Microsoft Philippines Academic Team will be having DreamSpark Activation Day this December 15, 2012 at Microsoft Philippines.  Students will get access to DreamSpark, where they can get free developer tools used to create apps for Windows 8 and Windows Phone.  In addition, it also comes with a free 1-year developer account use for uploading apps to the Windows Store and Windows Phone Store.  Devices will also be provided so apps can be tested before being uploaded.
