Back in October, I had written about our team's pull crew for hacking on open source projects. I had meant to write a review of the various contributions that we had managed. However, life happened, and that post is still in the works.

With growing interest in neural networks and deep learning, individuals and companies are claiming ever-increasing adoption rates of artificial intelligence into their daily workflows and product offerings.

You've framed your problem, prepared your datasets, designed your models and revved up your GPUs. With bated breath, you start training your neural network, hoping to return in a few days to great results.

October usually marks the start of fall and inevitably also brings with it a festive mood. During this period, one of the events that I look forward to is Hacktoberfest - the annual code festival organized by DigitalOcean and GitHub.
