24-Hour Hackathon at the Hack Factory


Twin Cities Maker‘s Hack Factory will be holding a special 24-hour hackathon to raise funds for the space via Give To The Max Day, an annual fundraising day where nonprofits get their donations doubled. The hackathon begins 12am on the 14th (this Thursday) and ends the following midnight.

Makers, hackers, and DIY enthusiasts are encouraged to display projects and participate throughout the event. The event is free and open to the public. If you want to display a project, please email us at faire@tcmaker.org and let us know what sort of space requirements or table space you may need (and what sort of time frame you think you’ll be there).

In addition to project displays, there is also going to be a group build of a Steampunk themed Skeeball machine. Everyone is encouraged to contribute to the project. There will be live music and beverages in the evening. Computer terminals will be set up to facilitate online donations at the Micro Minne Faire.

Sounds like some cool projects will be featured, so check it out and donate to a good cause! [photo credit: Paul Sobczak]
