Just a few days ago GitHub announced a new partner for their GitHub Education Student Developer Pack: DataDog which joins an already great list of other perks and access to premium software or services, essentially for free. Earlier this month they’ve added Transifex, while Thinkful joined them in August.
I’ve previously wrote about this pack last year in 20+ paid products you can get FREE right NOW if you’re a student article.
So how can all these new services help?
With Datadog, you’ll be able to see metrics from all your apps, tools, and services. The plan allows you to:
- Monitor up to 10 concurrent hosts.
- Retain stock and custom metrics for up to 13 months.
- Create insightful dashboards to demonstrate the performance and availability of your applications.
- Create notifications upon failures.
Transifex is a cloud-based platform built to help you manage the translation and localization of your software.
Members are eligible for a free year of the Starter plan, a $99/month value. You’ll get 50,000 hosted words, unlimited projects, and access to translation partners to bring your software to a global market from the start. You can create software that works internationally from the moment you build your app.
Thinkful is now offering their Fundamentals of Web Development course to Student Developer Pack members. As a student, you will receive two weeks of 1-on-1 mentorship from a professional software developer.
It’s a no brainer, if you’re a student. You can apply here →
