Hack The Blob is a hackathon - a sprint-like event in which innovators come up with usable software or hardware with the end goal of creating a functioning product. However, Hack The Blob aims to be more than just a hackathon. Besides the traditional design-a-product-or-service, we will also have several events such as workshops in computer programming and fun activities such as a Minecraft tournament and scavenger hunt!
