    • Microsoft Azure free $100 - no CC needed

      This & Lotsa other types of Domains are always free, for 1 year… Then cost heaps, to keep alive, later.

      Eg: .OOO (3 Oh's, Not to confuse w/ "Triple O" as in Dial…)

      "The first one is always free"

        "The first one is always free"

        That's how my dealer works. He doesn't know that many of his first time customers are my friends.

      •  

        They are? Huh, I had no idea! Got a link to any of those? Could have some fun :)

        •  

          namecheap.com has these weird extensions for like $2 for the first year. .icu .club things like that, then after the first year it's something stupid like $50 a year.

      •  

        you wrote "not to confuse with triple O. Why did you use an O and not an 0? you're meant to be clarifying things

      •  

        If only there was a way to profit from websites with forgettable extensions where you only needed the site for one year.

      •  

        That's why you transfer out before renewal is due. I've always found Route53 to have the cheapest rates.

      Free Unreal Engine access as long as you’re a student

      Isn't Unreal Engine 4 now free for everyone anyway?

    • +3 votes

      Namecheap already give your first year of .me address for A$5.64 per year, which is actually normally A$27.60 per year. So the saving is actually $5.64. And then you're on the hook for $27.60 per year after that, or else give up your .me address.

    When will there be recognition that you don't need to be enrolled in a education institution to be a student.

    • +1 vote

      There already is:

      Just show your skills via your web site or app / application creations, & the ability to make changes, do maintenance, etc. cost-effectively.

      Maybe show it all to small businesses, needing such work, & do deals.

      PS For a [Lifetime, last time I checked] school eMail addr. maybe register for a Free uTas course (Gardening's offered now).

      I believe that there is an important semiotic distinction to be made. Just because the word student may be used to mean something else does not mean that every time the word is used, it must encompass all senses of the word. People are not going to realise that the word means something else because it does not in the context.

      By definition, a student can be a school pupil, or it may be a person who is studying at a university or other place of higher education (Cambridge dictionary, both UK/US). The "student developer pack" is thus likely a result of some people at GitHub thinking about who they would like to benefit, considering that there are learners who do not attend a place of education, then thinking no, we want to target this to students as defined by full-time enrollment at a school or other institution of learning.

    That's handy and useful, thanks for sharing :D

    I just use netlify for my personal stuff; it has free hosting, HTTPS and hooks up to GitHub/Bitbucket and can deploy directly from your repository.

    Also very easy to scale if you need functionality such as user/login authentication, forms or automated deployments etc.

    Students, don't forget you also have free access to all Autodesk products: https://www.autodesk.com/education/free-software/featured

    Of course only a small number of people outside of Engineering or Multimedia will have any use for CAD or 3d creator applications, but they may be a motivated few who want to create mods for games (eg adding a new gun to Fallout or a new sword to Skyrim).

    Unfortunately Adobe is stingy and doesn't provide students with free access to it's products.

    • +1 vote

      Adobe actually does, through Onthehub students can get a bunch of software free/discounted. In the NSW one, Creative Cloud is entirely free for a year, and students can get another year’s licence once it’s up for free. Also free Windows 10 Education licence, or an individual Photoshop licence if you prefer. Lots of options there :)

    Worked with my TAFE NSW Email account. Thanks OP

    it sucks that they exclude homeschooled kids in these deals :(

  •  

    The good stuff is Visual Studio 2019, 2017, 2015 Enterprise, and Server 2019 and Server 2016 Data Center.

    Don't forget that: When Microsoft f**k up like changing everyone's Windows 10 Pro to Home. It means they've done something to the KMS servers, so go re-generate a new set of keys, so you double up your stockpile.

    Great info. I'm not a student but I'll get my brother into this.
