An interesting read about an Uber Eats glitch that allowed folks to order free food
Gergely Orosz
As it's been ~3 years, figured I'll answer "What caused the Uber Eats glitch that allowed ordering free food for a weekend in India?"

This was an outage on my watch. Given Quora is paywalled - can't post the answer w/o a sub - here's the story on idempotency & breaking changes:
GitHub - RunaCapital/awesome-oss-alternatives: Awesome list of open-source startup alternatives to well-known SaaS products 🚀
Fun Stuff

Words of Wisdom for the Week

I love this. Been coding for cash for 30 years and I learn new stuff from early in career folks EVERY WEEK. Old just means I’m still here and I’m experienced. It doesn’t mean I don’t learn constantly from my awesome coworkers!
Shameless plugs

Yes, it’s yet another newsletter folks! I post stuff in Slack and other communities I’m a part of, so instead of losing all those links to the “Slack”hole, I decided to start a newsletter!

So welcome to links to cool and interesting stuff I found on the Internet during the week, with some fun stuff too, and shameless plugs.
