Hackaday is having a global event this coming Saturday April 22nd. We'll be gathering for SHHH 39 as well as celebrating World Create Day, essentially, come on down to the space and hack! Make something cool, show off your projects using #WorldCreateDay even if you can't make it in to the space.
Hackaday is also running a contest, I haven't read 100% what the requirements are, but check it out, but a quick glance looks like you build a small team, or work alone, pick a project, and can win a small amount of funding to go towards you turning it in to a reality! Looks pretty awesome, you should definitely check it out and solicit some people at SHHH to team up!
