DigitalOcean, really a no-brainer. You get $50 in server credits to spend over 12 months.
2 ideas to get your creativity started:
Before you redeem: Get a $1oo more and keep this server up ;) (thank you)
Yes, more server credits. This time, one server for free, for two years. Sounds good, right?
Get a free .me domain on Namecheap (noticed the URL you’re visiting right now?) for one year. Looking for ideas to use it for? Read on.
Continuous Integration has really helped me become a better developer, by forcing me to write tests and pass a linter. It really helps, even with solo projects. There is really no reason to not get it.
Sentry is an awesome tool to track errors in your products. Surprise, you get it for free with the pack.
JetBrains makes awesome IDEs and they are giving the pro versions away for free with the developer pack.
Edit: JetBrains offers their licenses without the pack as well here.
Do you want an awesome git GUI for your awesome GitHub projects? Surprise, you get that one for free too, specifically the pro version of GitKraken
Before you redeem: Please use my referral code, we both will be entered for Nintendo Switches and I get some swag :)
