Cyber Monday 2018
Here is a list of the Black Friday deals I have come across which I believe would be useful for developers, bootstrappers, hackers and makers.
This is in no way an endorsement of any or all of them. None of the links are affiliates. I just thought it would be helpful to have everything in one place. If you are know of any other interesting deals which would appeal to this audience please shoot me an email at
