Github Student Pack

Honestly, I don't like University. There is a lot of points I can tell you but that is not my purpose in writing this blog post. One benefit I get from university(the reason why I don't wanna drop out) is Github Student Pack.

Github Student Pack consists of tons of Free and Free trial app that I can use for my side project(or, just wanna check and learn). Arrange by 12 awesome categories like cloud, design, developer tools, domains, IoT, API, productivity, and so on. I want to check out all that stuff and thinking of its usefulness.

Most Loved one

1) Canva

What I get: Free 12 month subscription to Canva's Pro tier.

I already used Canva since 14 years old. With all nice looking templates and graphics, dammm, so cool. It will also help me doing marketing stuff like Social Media banners, Infographic, and also resume makers. Perfect 🚀.

2) Namecheap

What I get: 1- 1 year SSL certificate. 2- 1 year domain name registration on the .me TLD.

The best part is on the SSL certificate because usually, Namecheap will charge $8.88/y. When buying a domain name, the first is for the domain name itself like asyraf.com or github.com (frequently, the price will be $8.88/y). Then the SSL certificate to add a security layer for our domain name(http => https). Roughly, it will be $20/y(also add ICAN fees).

Now, I can remove the SSL fees and choose the .me domain name for 1 year for free.

3) Jetbrain

What I get: A free subscription for students, to be renewed annually.
