Credit card on cloud 9
C9.io requires a credit card
#2

You can create it with an empty debit card i think.


#3

how can i create it ?


#4

Let me know if you get it to work. But you can also run all the tutorials on your computer.


#5

Yes i can run all the tutorials on my computer i have git and nodeJS installed

Where i live, i just went to a bank and said i want a debit card, signed some papers, paid 5 euros i think and i got a debit card that works for a year or two (can’t remember) but they automatically ask me to renew it via mobile phone. I think there’s also a fine of 50 cents a month or so as a price for having the card.

Then if i ever want to buy something on the internet i just go to the same bank and give them money, and tell them to put into my account.

I believe you don’t really need cloud9 for anything else. I think it is easier to develop the backend projects on your own pc, rather than online.


#8

can i create the tuto of git on my computer ?


#9

Yes, you can use the command prompt. I suggest you create a folder where you can put all your files for the backend tutorials. In the command prompt go there and follow along with the instructions.

heroku.com doesn’t ask for a credit card. i’m still struggling to understand how that works.

Here there’s a tutorial https://devcenter.heroku.com/articles/getting-started-with-nodejs#set-up.

You can get a C9 workspace through Harvard’s CS50 course on edX, no credit card required. Sign up for the course then go to cs50.io and log in with your edX credentials.

@Adib12
I’m not sure if this works because I haven’t tested it yet, but you could try to get a Vanilla Visa gift card (available at some retail stores) or something else of that nature; it’s essentially a card you put money on and swipe at retailers (or online). It has the same things as a standard credit card (number, expiration date, CCV). If they ask for the name on the card, try leaving it blank.

[EDIT] The grocery store near me now uses this card brand.

Personally i would never use this card… when you go to the website it is not secure… so all the confidence i could have went right out the window!! :S

“This page is insecure (broken HTTPS).”

I use a Revolut card (https://revolut.com/).

It is pretty much the same thing (a prepaid credit card but with owner identification) and has been nice so far. I travel a lot in Europe for work, use the card all the time and i never had any issues with it (that said, i know a couple of swiss people with Swiss accounts that are having problems with theirs… something about a bank change).

I ordered mine and got it in about 7 days, completely for free!!

Their APP is also great… i recommend it.
