I stumbled upon the GitHub Education Pack last week while looking to see if GitHub had an educational discount. They do, in a way….free. Not only does GitHub offer a free educational account for several years they have (apparently) teamed up with over a dozen other development tools/vendors/services to offer their services as well. It took a week or so for GitHub to review the request and respond, but it’s well worth the wait. While I haven’t checked out all of the services, I have looked at a few and it’s pretty fantastic (free is hard to beat). If you are a student I definitely recommend checking it out.
