Hackster Hardware Weekend

10 Cities | 10 Hackathons | 10 Meetups | 1 DeLorean

Ready to hack a better future?

The Hackster Hardware Weekend is a celebration of makers, open source hardware and the Hackster community across America. From Seattle to NYC and everything in between, we are hitting the road driving an original DeLorean DMC 12 to run the coolest Hackathon & Meetup series of the year, with loads of hardware kits, amazing speakers, software freebies and great people. Our goal is simple: educate, connect and help people invent and create the seeds of a better future.

What will you build with the DeLorean? Share your ideas on the DeLorean projects page.
