    What's Hacktoberfest?

    Hacktoberfest — brought to you by DigitalOcean in partnership with DEV — is a month-long celebration of open source software. Maintainers are invited to guide would-be contributors toward issues that will help move the project forward, and contributors get the opportunity to give back to both projects they like and others they've just discovered. No contribution is too small — bug fixes and documentation updates are valid ways of participating.

    Can't make it to this event? Hacktoberfest is virtual and open to participants from around the globe. Sign up to participate today at https://hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com.

    How I Did Everything Right and Still Set Fire to Millions of Expedia’s Dollars
    Derek Zumsteg, most recently a Group Product Manager at Simple Finance

    A decade-old tale of the problems of opaque pricing, the vagaries of usability, stakeholder management, and how over a year and a half I built a product that utterly failed to make an extra dollar. Could we do better today?
