Do students know this?

Did you know that if you're a student and currently enrolled in some course, you can get a free GitHub pro account, access to many online learning resources, and developer tools for free?

Well, I didn't know about it until recently, which means that I have wasted two and a half years of benefits that I could've availed during my course of study. But, better late than never, right?

GitHub offers this pack called Student Developer Pack where you get the benefits mentioned above and all you have to do is sign up on GitHub and fulfill these requirements.

A Quick Overview

This program offers tons of stuff to choose from. Here I have mentioned some of the highlights of the program:

For those interested in Data Science

If you want to become a Data Scientist then using this pack you can get free three months access to DataCamp which is an awesome platform to learn Python, R, and all the stuff related to Data Science.

Miscellaneous Learning Resources

If you're interested in Web Development then you can get a free 6-month subscription of Frontend Masters or a 1-month subscription of OneMonth. If it's other programming skills that you would like to develop then you can get a 6-month subscription of Educative.

Preparation for Interviews

This pack provides 3-week access to Interview Cake which can help you prepare for your next interview.


Want to set up a portfolio site? Get a free domain name for one year from NameCheap, and .Tech Domains using this pack.

Unity for Game Developers

If you want to step up your game development skills, then you can get free access to Unity and its resources while you're a student.

Tools for Developers

GitHub offers a huge list of tools that you can use like Heroku, Bootstrap Studio, Arduino, MongoDB, etc.

So go ahead and register in the program to get these benefits and make the most of it. Happy learning and happy coding!

If you would like to discuss anything, then feel free to drop a comment or head over to Twitter, that's where I usually hang out.

I think I was lucky that I had researched everything and knew about Student Pack!
