Like to hack? Well, you’re in luck! :) This week there are a whole bunch of hacking-related events on the docket, including ROBOTIS at Hack Manhattan, the Open Street Map hack day, Ordr.in’s Hack Food, a contest at Wix design, and hackathons at the Feast Conference and Tapped NFC.

Coders, hackers, filmmakers and visual artists will be joining forces to create new and innovative ideas demonstrating how technology can enrich the end-to-end movie experience. The winning team will receive three SXSW 2013 Film badges and be featured as a highlighted participant in the inaugural Film Startup Alley at the festival. Nice! Read More
