Getting Blackfire in the Pack

Over the years, we received more and more requests from students to get free access to Blackfire. We’ve always wanted to do that. But as we’re still a small company, we had to find a scalable, automated way to activate and deactivate student subscriptions as they were entering and completing their education curriculum.

That’s where GitHub Education shines! With the GitHub Student Developer Pack, GitHub offers an amazing variety of software development tools to students and universities. Enterprise/professional software become available during studies, enabling students to get hands-on experience, and prepare for their future work environments.

What Blackfire offers

You can’t optimize what you can’t measure. Blackfire is a tool that enables PHP (and soon more languages) developers to profile their code, understand and fix performance bottlenecks.

With the GitHub Student Developer Pack, Blackfire gives students a free Profiler subscription, for as long as they will have access to the Pack. That’s up to 696€ in value!
