A new renewable Office 365 developer subscription has launched, meaning rather than a subscription expiring after a year, they now renew every 90 days.
“Now, you can get a free Office 365 developer subscription with 25 user licenses to use to build your solutions and it will remain active for as long as you’re actively developing and deploying solutions.”
Microsoft is making this available for real developers, doing real development work as they put it.

If you don’t qualify for this, the developer subscription will not be renewed and will expire after three months. Subscriptions starting before August 2018 are not renewable.
