FirstBuild is excited to announce this year’s Mega Hackathon theme: Hack the Home. Over 300 designers, engineers, makers, students, and foodies will gather in Louisville, KY over the weekend of September 9-10.  After reviewing the latest innovations, everyone will be able to design, build, code, and hack the next generation of appliances.
