Weekend Hackathon: It's About Time!

What's February about? It's About Time! It's About Time you finish that project you've been putting off for months! It's About Time you join our hackathon!

If you have something half-finished lying around, or just won't get started on that project, you've succumbed to hack-crastination! Come to the space on the weekend of 2/15-2/17 to beat it back alongside the MakerBar community.

The It's About Time hackathon is 48 straight hours of gittin' things done, designed to break you and your project out of your funk. The MakerBar's tools, machinery, spare parts, 3D printer, and more are available for your use, leaving no room for your petty excuses!

For those who have a hack-crastination relapse, we'll screen a time-themed movie like Back to the Future in the lounge. For those who power through the pain and finish up, we'll have a mini photo studio so you can get your project on Hackaday!

Food and caffeine will be available all weekend. BYOB drinking is encouraged.

You don't need to stay for the entire hackathon - feel free to arrive and drop out when you'd like. Just remember, sleep deprivation fades... but the glory of finishing that project will be with you forever!

No project? Feel free to come in and pick one out of our Make Magazine rack, grab a soldering kit, or grab something to modify from our Hack Rack.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
