Amazing News for GitHub Student Developer Pack Holders
#1
[Note: This thread had already been composer by me and saved in draft. But as @Kururin already mentioned it in @Gregol 's thread just for formality, this is an elaborative version of what he'd written]

Good news... Good news... Good news and even better news. So guys it'd been a very tough week as I'm preparing for my upcoming exams. Got some relief this Sunday otherwise I would have completed and published this thread earlier. I'm your Santa Claus for the day.. Thanks to GitHub!

So it happened that I was going through my GitHub Student Developer Pack offers a week ago. The first few offers were the usual ones I see. But while scrolling down, this caught my eye. There were around then new offers from various sponsors with whom GitHub had collaborated. Each offer was amazing in itself.

Among everything, I'd like to highlight this. As we all know, there was the NameCheap free .me domain offer already. NOW THERE ARE TWO MORE SUCH FREE DOMAIN OFFERS [b/]. They are from Name.com and Get.tech respectively. Both of them will now provide a year of free domain registration on eligible extensions. For Get.tech it's very obvious the extension is .tech . For Name.com here is the list of the [b]25 eligible extensions :

".BIKE
.CODES
.COMPANY
.COMPUTER
.CONSULTING
.DIGITAL
.EMAIL
.ENGINEER
.FAIL
.GAMES
.LIVE
.MEDIA
.NINJA
.ROCKS
.SOCIAL
.SOFTWARE
.STUDIO
.SYSTEMS
.TEAM
.TECHNOLOGY
.TOOLS
.VIDEO
.VISION
.WORKS
.WTF"

So isn't this amazing! Three domains for a whole year, all for FREE. I bet you can't disagree.

In addition to this, there are a hell lot of other offers too. Another new one which I admire is the Terminus SSH Client for Desktop and Mobile. Anyways it's free for all, however, as a part of the GitHub Education Per
Programme we get ALL the features of the Terminus Pro Plan which costs $8.5 a month. That's till we remain a student.

Other new offers include PushBots, PomoDone, Phrase and lots more. See the full list here: https://education.github.com/pack/offers.

Personally, I'm very thankful to GitHub. The existing offers of AWS and Azure credits initially brought me into this VPS industry and enabled me to learn more about Linux Administration and eventually become proficient. This would have been otherwise impossible for me as I honestly cannot afford the prices for these services. A great thanks to GitHub from my side!

I'm sure all others involved with the GitHub Education Programme will after with me. Even if you're not, doesn't matter. No one can stop you from expressing your views. I've spoken enough about this - now it's your turn friends. Let me know what you think about this in the replies.

Sayan Bhattacharyya,

Heartiest thanks to Post4VPS and Virmach for my wonderful VPS 9!

Great offer by Github! That's mind blowing. I used to have my .me domain at second half of 2017, and still have my student pack until now. I think I will absolutely grab that free domain offer! Name.com also provide so many TLD to choose, another great offer.

But, the main offer that interest me is how .tech is there! A nice domain to have. How amazing is that if I use tiwil.tech, like a tech geek right?

I like the fact they are offering more options, however, I personally don't really prefer these other word domains like .tech or .world, but maybe that's just me..But still, free stuff doesn't hurt, I once applied there with my real school ID however I never really got a reply back, not sure why they decided to ignore my request instead of atleast declining it.

Yeah @Honey.. Can't say if that's only you but that's definitely not me. Anything's that offered for free is amazing for me, like the domains, hosting at HelioHost and VPS at Post4VPS. Now maybe this is me, owing to the fact that I really can't afford any of the aforesaid items.

Regarding your not receiving the reply, just go ahead and apply again. Maybe they missed your request in the lots. Coz like many, I too don't have a school-issued email address and had to apply with my student ID card itself. Maybe they'll accept your request this time. Who knows! Anyways best of luck if you do apply. :-)

It takes 5 days to approve and i mostly get rejected instead of ignore the request . and make sure that the id isnt blur and edited . They see the exif of the image to determine edited image and peobably looking for string called photoshop

I have just claimed two domain ( .me and .tech ). It's really very great service. There are many other offers but i have just claimed only domains. The most great news is that we can get all offers by only 1 account.

True @Rehan. GitHub's indeed doing a great job through this programme, but felt it necessary to mention, we should be even more thankful to the sponsors without whose support this wouldn't have been possible.

Well for now, I've only claimed the .me domain offer. I don't need another domain for now, but yes will need it in the best future for things I develop.

Another offer I've claimed is the Termius SSH Client one. It's a great one you know, both for desktop and Android. Even more for Android since the controls and interface is very well-defined. All the more, we get the Pro pack of Termius for free through GitHub. There's the free plan for all - but that had limitations like SFTP and autologin feature which we enjoy. Really good client, honestly even better than Putty since everything's available at the tap of a button. It's a damn great one for newbies, bcoz you don't need ANY tutorial to get through it's interface whereas you'll definitely need one if you're a first-timer on Putty.
