What is a hacker?
A hacker uses technology to create something new that pushes the bounds of what was possible before. They constantly strive to build and won’t let any problem stop them in their goals.
Hack does not mean breaking into things, but rather building creative solutions to problems. A hacker utilizes technology to create any idea they have. They embrace problems and constraints as opportunities for creativity in their hack.
