There are lots of great things about being a student. An unlimited number of drinking partners, the chance to eat what you when you like and the freedom to work for 24 hours without sleep if you fancy it. And some students even get to go to my lectures. Lucky people.
And how students can also get their hands on some rather nice free goodies from the GitHub people. Their Student Developer Pack offer gives you free space on their system for your projects, access to the Unreal engine and a host of hosting goodies. Find out more here.
You can also leverage your student status to get goodies from Microsoft, including a free copy of Visual Studio Professional 2013 via their DreamSpark programme. At Hull we have signed up for the professional version of DreamSpark, which makes even more goodies available. Find out more here.
