Put down those keyboards and break out your knitted mousepads. Tis the holiday season! A time full of awkward family get togethers, Mariah Carey singalongs, and crazy Canadians on Black Friday.

But there's one part of the holidays that always makes our team happy—the abundance of deals! Given that the average American will spend $718 on gifts this holiday season, most companies are more than willing to shell out on big discounts. All of the big name companies compete for a bit more attention, and us developers score some cheap tech.

We typically put together a wish list of deals each year in our Slack room, but this is the first year we decided to share it with you all. Don't let us down—save wisely! Here are some of our favorite tech discounts.
