I'd definitely store all of my programming projects in a Google Drive if I wasn't already using Dropbox.

I recently finished my CS degree, and I had more than one professor say that they won't take "My computer crashed and I lost everything!" as an excuse for not being able to turn in homework.  Dropbox and Google Drive are both free, easy to use, and will keep several versions of your files so you can even use the excuse that your most recent save got corrupted.

Also, it was really nice to easily be able to save my work on my laptop, finish it on my desktop, and then print it from a school computer without dealing with a thumb drive.
