I came to know that SDL will be rolling out Web 8 with free developer licenses. If that's true, does anyone know how and where to apply for the developer license? Thanks in advance.

This will roll out in the coming 3/4 weeks (before end of November) on community.sdl.com. Rest assured, we'll make enough noise around that, you'll find it easily.

These will be your typical "free research" licenses, issued to individuals that want to learn the software, it's for non-commercial use, etc.

EDIT I've started an FAQ on Meta.

  • Hi @Lalit Welcome to Tridion Stack Exchange. I have converted your answer to a comment as it did not answer the question. I hazard a guess and say that the licences are probably coming in the next few weeks since the software came out yesterday. Keep an eye on Twitter, here and community.sdl.com Commented Dec 9, 2015 at 18:32

    We hit a bit of a snag deploying the form to community.sdl.com - keeping up with my promise, send an email to [email protected] and I'll sort you out

    Very important part "non-commercial" -- so can not be used for customer projects! Commented Dec 10, 2015 at 8:28
