It’s #hackfriday 2013! Stay in and Make Something Great!
It’s Hack Friday! (finally!)
All day today we’ll be featuring projects from around the web — tag your project posts #hackfriday on Twitter and G+ and we’ll post them up on the Adafruit blog!
You’re welcome to post your own #hackfriday projects, ideas, and aspirations in the comments here too.
What is Hack Friday?
Hack Friday is an alternative to Black Friday that celebrates personal initiative and creativity. Instead of mobbing the local box store at 4am, you sleep in, stay home, and work on your own projects with the people you love. A Hack Friday project can be anything you like, from gardening to programming to woodwork and beyond — the point is to encourage active creating instead of passive consuming. It’s an unofficial, nationwide 24-hour hackathon.
