What is GitHub Global Campus?

GitHub Global Campus is a new initiative by GitHub Education that brings various programs and products to students, teachers, and educational institutions at no cost. These resources can help automate workflows and provide support to cultivate new generations of developers, designers, and entrepreneurs.

GitHub's Global Campus - The Future of Work?

Having resources scattered all over the internet can be overwhelming, so having them all in a single place is helpful. That’s where GitHub Global Campus comes in handy - by giving you free access to industry-leading tools and educational programs meant to help individuals start and grow a successful career in tech.

Here are some other advantageous resources and tools you’ll find in this program: ConfigCat, Microsoft Azure, Visual Studio Code, Heroku, GitLens, Polypane, MongoDB, and more.

Why GitHub Student Developer Pack?

Here are a few things to consider.

  • Firstly, the GitHub Student Developer Pack provides students access to both free and premium developer tools. You’ll most likely have to use some of these tools anyway throughout your studies, so you might as well save a ton of money by using them through the GitHub Student Developer Pack rather than independently buying them.

Other benefits include:

  • Free GitHub Pro while you are a student
  • Valuable GitHub Student Developer Pack partner offers
  • GitHub Campus Expert training for qualified applicants
  • Networking with other students
  • Get practical industry knowledge that applies to one’s career goals
  • Recommended to-do list
  • Various events hosted by the designated campus expert
  • Assignments
  • Internship opportunities

ConfigCat and the GitHub Student Developer Pack
