There are many software / tools that are free to use for students. These are not the dumbed down free versions, but the full fledged tools that students can use to develop applications or simply write and share code. Below is a small list of such tools/software which I aim to extend with your help.
Note: The below software requires a .edu email id from your educational institution.
Github – https://education.github.com/
Dozens of free resources from great companies to help students learn. Includes text editors, cloud computing services, cloud hosting, domain, Visual Studio among many others.
Jetbrains – https://www.jetbrains.com/student/
I will keep adding more to this list as I discover more of these. You can comment below if you know any software/product/service that student developers get for free with a .edu email id.
Thanks in advance 🙂
