MVP program

Elsasoft recognizes the contribution that Microsoft MVPs, Microsoft MCTs, and Oracle ACEs make to the community. We like to reward that contribution with free not-for-resale (NFR) licenses of our products to MVPs, MCTs, and ACEs.

Even if you are not part of an official company sponsored program but are a recognized contributor to the database community, we'll consider you for the NFR license. Just send mail with some means for us to verify your community contribution.

Examples of a "community contribution" that would qualify could be a well-respected blog related to databases, or authorship of relevant articles free to the community.

If you wish to take advantage of this offer, please send mail to sqlspec@elsasoft.org with the following information:

  1. your full name
  2. proof of your contribution to the database community
  3. proof of your Microsoft MVP, Microsoft MCT, or Oracle ACE status if applicable
  4. confirmation that you have read and agree to the NFR license here.

We'll then review your details and be in touch with you.


Also if you work for a charity or open source project, get in touch. We often donate licenses to such organizations as well.

Here are some of the organizations we support with free licenses:


  1. Children's Hospital Boston - one of the largest pediatric medical centers in the United States.
  2. Christian Aid - an agency of churches in the UK and Ireland: "We work wherever the need is greatest - irrespective of religion or race." SqlSpec is used by Christian Aid in a number of other sites they run:
    1. PressureWorks
    2. TogetherTV
    3. GlobalGang
    4. PresentAid
  3. Focus Ireland - a leading charity in Ireland which provides a range of services to the homeless and those at risk of homelessness.
  4. Senior Services - manages the "Meals on Wheels" program and numerous other transportation, nutrition, wellness, and senior center programs in the greater Seattle area.
