Come with a team or meet new people to create a stupid, terrible idea that nobody needs! At the end of the day everyone will present their stupid terrible nonsense off at our Stupid Job Fair.
You can buy a ticket to participate in the hackathon and present your project OR if you’d just like to be very very very impressed, grab one to watch the presentations at the Stupid Job Fair. Bring your friends!
A hardware library with cameras, Arduinos, Cutting Edge “Electronic” Sensors, and more will be available for creating your stupid pointless garbage idea.
No tech expertise required! Bring us fresh eyes unsullied by the Status Quo. Bring us your fearless, innovative hearts and paradigm-bludgeoning minds. We need progammers, designers, comedians, videographers, artists, thought leaders, ideationists, neolibertarian techno-utopian oversimplifiers, the REAL HEROES, and YOU!
