  • Your age is +13 years.

If so, please continue:

  • Go to GitHub Student Pack
  • Click on the “Get the Pack” button and complete the verification process.

Use it wisely…

Some students get so excited about those great benefits, and activate all benefits at once, which might lead to losing them all, especially the limited – one time – benefits.

What I recommend is activating the benefits that you need NOW, for example; You are into Front End Development, go and Activate the 6-month subscription with Frontend Masters.

I don’t know what to do with these tools!

That’s fine, most of us don’t know what to do until we start checking others’ projects ideas. GitHub made it easier by providing us with the Student Gallery, a place where students from across the world have made projects and resources with tools from the Pack. Also, there are great stories like How the GitHub Student Developer Pack helped this student get a tech job.
