Still not sure if you should hit up our Hack-A-Thon? Still not tooooootally sure what it's all about? Let's do a quick breakdown
REALLY THOUGH, WHAT'S A HACK-A-THON? Admittedly, the term "Hack-A-Thon" stems for the hardcore tech/computer space. What they would consider a 'Hack-A-Thon' is a bunch of coders and/or programmers would do a marathon 'hacking' session. Since this term was born, 'Hack-A-Thon' expanded passed that definition. What the MSH Hack-A-Thon is all about is the same spirit, we've got a 3 DAY EVENT where we're focusing on rapid product prototyping Hack-A-Thon.
HANG ON, WHAT DO YOU MEAN A 'PRODUCT PROTOTYPING HACK-A-THON'? Well that's a damn good question. For a better definition of what we mean by "product", check out our blog posting for tomorrow (Saturday) but I'll give you the cliff notes. While computer hackers would writing lines of computer code, the MSH Hack-A-Thon is focused on producing PRODUCTS! Like I'm talking about physical products that you can hold in your hand! This is why the MSH Hack-A-Thon is a GOLD MINE for entrepreneurs that want to create their passion project.
WHAT THE HELL IS "RAPID" PROTOTYPING? "Rapid Prototyping" sounds like a bit of buzz word, kind of something makes you tilt your head a bit and wonder "What do they mean by that". Let's make sense of those words.
- A "Prototype" is how you develop something in order to bring it to market, in order to sell it! It's like when you would write an essay in school, a "prototype" are the drafts that you write before you have the final copy.
- What about "Rapid"? Well, when you're developing products, building various prototypes can take a loooooooong time (like months or years). At the MSH Hack-A-Thon, we allow you achieve something in 3 days that could normally take weeks or months or years!
