The main goal of our platform for students is to provide an opportunity to gain knowledge.
For those who regularly study at Stepik, we can give you a key to activate JetBrains products.
The first step to obtaining a key is solving more than 3 programming, data analysis, SQL or Linux tasks at one of the open courses with obtaining a certificate within a week. Fill out the questionnaire, study regularly and help others.
The second step is performed by an algorithm. According to conditions hidden from a user, it checks accounts, including for an absence of suspicion of fraudulent actions.
If we suspect a user of fraud, we can refuse to issue a key or revoke an issued key.
Please note that JetBrains has a free 30-day trial version available for all IDEs, and some IDEs are completely free.
What courses and problems will give me such an opportunity?
Almost any open course at Stepik if it issues certificates. Problems to solve are in programming (e.g. https://stepik.org/lesson/3380/step/1), data analysis (e.g. https://stepik.org/lesson/3380/step/5), Linux (e.g. https://stepik.org/lesson/4760/step/8) и SQL (e.g. https://stepik.org/lesson/297509/step/2)
Is a license granted only once?
No, you can get another key by solving more problems.
If you have an active license, only those problems will be taken into the account that were solved after its expiry.
All Products Pack license registration
The license key that you receive on the platform is "All Products Pack". If you have a valid or expired license for a JetBrains product, then you don't need to register a new license, you should renew the previous one.
Instruction from JetBrains
You can upgrade your current subscription to All Products Pack license from your JetBrains account using the “Upgrade” link, which is displayed next to all the licenses that can be upgraded. If you have any questions, please contact Sales.
What if I have solved the problems but did not get any license?
If all the conditions are met and no license is received, please contact us at https://support.stepik.org/hc/ru/ requests/new and send us a number of problems solved, the courses with them and the link to your profile.
Please check Notifications.
If you did not find a notification about a received license, please check Read notifications. To do this, in the Notifications section, select the "Read" or "Any status" filter to display all notifications.
If the problems of the required type are solved, but the license does not come, continue to solve problems.
The algorithm will issue you a license when it sees fit to do so.
The more problems you solve on Stepik, the more likely the algorithm will issue a JetBrains license key for you.
To issue a license key, user accounts are checked by hidden conditions, and Stepik has the right to both refuse to issue a key and revoke an already issued key without prior notice to the user.
