GitHub has collaborated with the tech industry to create a package that will include all the resources that a student need while graduating. GitHub Education offers students real-world experience with free access to various developer tools from GitHub’s partners.
The Pack is open to every student 13 years or older👨🎓 in a degree-granting program. Most students apply for the Pack using their school-issued email address. However, students whose schools don’t provide email addresses are able to apply for the Pack using their dated student ID.
How to avail GitHub pack 🤷♀️🤷♂️?
Well, it’s pretty straight forward.
First of all go to the following link: https://education.github.com/pack
log in to your GitHub account in order to avail the Student Developer Pack.
Clicking on “Get your Pack” will prompt you to sign up with your GitHub account so that it can authorize your profile with the request for the pack, and confirm that you are a student and are older than 13 years.
After signing up, you will have to submit some basic information:-
- Institutional email ID( An IEEE email address would suffice if you don’t have an institutional one) Name of your institution
- To confirm that we are actually a student, we are asked to upload a validation — a school ID or a letter. It should show our current status as a student.
After entering all the necessary information, you can hit the “submit request” button and wait for your confirmation email usually takes 28 days to arrive.
