GitHub offering students free access to game development tools

GitHub has packaged together a selection of development tools for students free of charge.

The GitHub Student Developer Pack includes free access to crowdsourcing platform Crowdflower, $100 in platform credit to cloud hosting solution DigitalOcean and access to DNS management service DNSimple at no cost.

Other free tools and credit in the bundle include Atom, Bitnami, HackHand, Namecheap, Orchestrate, Screenhero, SendGrid, Stripe and Travis CI.

Unreal Engine 4 is also included for free to students as part of the package, though free access can be arranged directly with Epic through its new UE4 licence for academics.

To get the pack, you must prove you are aged 13 or over and are currently enrolled on a degree or diploma course.

You can find more information about what’s included in the pack and how to sign up here.
