Say the word “hack” or “hacker” and the impression you create is likely a negative one. Organizers of Spartahack are quick to point out their hacking event is about building and creating websites, apps, anything that’s connected to the digital world. It takes place beginning this Friday evening here at Michigan State University. Spartahack is expected to attract about 300 participants.
Current State speaks with Richard Enbody, a professor of Computer Science and faculty advisor for Spartahack, and Caitlin McDonald, a computer science student, organizer and the “processor core” of this event.
