What is hacking? :sunglasses:

No, it’s not digitally breaking into banks or other illegal activity, we’re talking about writing software for fun. Hacker culture is about making neat technical projects and learning along the way. Getting started is hard, so we created this website to help!

Is this for me? :thinking:
