A "hackathon" is a social event where people come together for a short period of time to make a project, like an app or physical prototype. A "stupid shit hackathon" is an event where people come together to make projects that are bad, useless, terrible, and probably should have never been made. There are no prizes and definitely no winners. It's really fun.
Here are some things that participants made in previous years:
"I AM BECOME ANIME" by Nicky Case
"Screamy Bird" by Glen
"Tuned a Fish" by Mac and Ted
"The Vape Boy" by Ada and Seth
(No vaping in the venue)
You don't need to know how to code to participate, though coding can help when making software projects.
