Free Datadog accounts for students

Poet John Keats once wrote, “Nothing ever becomes real till it is experienced.” It’s certainly true of dynamic infrastructure and distributed applications, where knowing what a technology should do is often very different from the actual implementation experience.

Due to the rapid evolution of technology, most computer-science programs focus on architecture and design fundamentals. This typically means that students graduate without any knowledge of modern monitoring best practices, let alone experience with monitoring tools. Ambitious students who attempt to learn about monitoring on their own often face another barrier: the financial cost.

To help eliminate the financial barrier, we’ve partnered with GitHub’s Student Developer Pack and are offering students a free Datadog Pro account for up to 10 hosts. Just like our paid Datadog Pro accounts, each student will be able to:

  • Store data in its original granularity for 15 months
  • Receive alerts
  • Collaborate by adding users to their account
  • Get help from the Datadog Support Team
