If you read the October 2016 issue of Popular Mechanics, you may have noticed a section of the Breakthrough Awards devoted to competitors from Major League Hacking, the competition circuit for college and high school-aged hackathons. And you may also have noticed that Danny Yim and Jake Kaplan of the Bergen County Academies in New Jersey took home a prize at their hackathon for making one soldering iron to rule them all. And then, if you're still with me, you probably found yourself wondering: What's a hackathon actually like? What's it like solving problems when you haven't slept and have nothing in your body but soft drinks and processed carbs? Well, on today's show, Danny and Jake drop by the studio to fill you in.Special musical thanks this week goes to Hackerblinks for their song "Eighth."
