Over the past year, hackathons have taken the country by storm.  Hackathons provide a venue for self-expression and creativity through technology. People with technical backgrounds come together, form teams around a problem or idea, and collaboratively code a unique solution from scratch — these generally take shape in the form of websites, mobile apps, and robots.  To sum it up, at a hackathon, people come together and use technology to transform ideas into reality.
