Hacking is building things that you always wanted to have but no one has built it yet. It’s to come up with an amazing idea and work tirelessly on it. It is to fail, fail again and fail better. Trying out new things and learn while doing it. Driving innovation, adding value and building real-time collaboration. In the end, it’s to be the best solution provider.
