    Hey guys, just want to say hat Github just recently offers their Student Development Pack which includes a bunch of goodies including:


    • $100 in DigitalOcean credit (can be used even if you've used other promos) * Note that new accounts need a Credit Card or $5 deposit via PayPal for the promo code to apply.
    • Free .me domain name and SSL certificate from NameCheap
    • Free DNS management from DNSimple
    • Free BitNami access on Business 3 account
    • No transaction fees for first $1,000 in revenue through Stripe
    • Your GitHub account gets upgraded to a Micro account allowing private repositories
    • Unreal Engine access worth $19/month
    And there is more on the page (https://education.github.com/pack).

    You need to have a .edu email in a degree or diploma course, I just signed up with my edu.au email and got full access.
    Might not be for all people, but it's very handy for me and I'm sure some others. The $100 DigitalOcean credit is extremely nice.

    Enjoy :)
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 2

    Says you need:

    All you need is a school-issued email address, valid student identification card, or other official proof of enrollment
