Axosoft Gives 42 Silicon Valley Students Free Access
to the GitKraken Git Client and Glo Boards
FREMONT, California – GitKraken by Axosoft and 42 Silicon Valley are announcing a new partnership between the software company and programming school. 42 Silicon Valley students now have access to two legendary GitKraken tools for free: the GitKraken Git Client and Glo Boards for task tracking.
As part of one of GitKraken’s educational initiatives, GitKraken Stand-Alone has been installed for free (normally $99/ user/year) on hundreds of computers at 42 Silicon Valley, and is ready for all of our students to use. GitKraken makes Git operations not only efficient but also more engaging. These legendary dev tools will be a great asset to the 42 community. We are eager to see how the GitKraken Git Client and Glo Boards will take our students to the next level.
42 student Michael Lu has used the GitKraken Git Client. He shared, “What makes GitKraken so nice is that you can see everything. This includes the commits, the staging, all of the pushes, all of the requests. It is basically like a hub that organizes all of that information for you. It even automates some of the pushing work for you, which is convenient.”
42 Silicon Valley’s Chief Academic Officer, Gaetan Juvin, commented, “GitKraken is a solution that provides something that is very useful for our students. The GitKraken Git Client provides a user interface for Git that helps give a better understanding about how Git is working. It will help students move to a more advanced stage of Git, and it will help them in their learning process.”
