As a Hacker, you're responsible for creating a useful, interesting or fun piece of work that others will want to use. As a result, you must have strong creative abilities to design technologies that are unique, visually appealing, interesting and thought-provoking. You’ll construct projects that engage users, encouraging them to purchase new items you create when released for public distribution.
You will be creating and applying all the artwork, models, surfaces, images and textures which comprise your project. You will need to consider the layout and flow of your project, as well as create flow charts to map out the activities and people involved in your project’s development.
Many technologists need to be able to prototype their projects quickly in small batches to test their reliability and application in real situations. Being able to safely, sensibly and reliably use (sometimes potentially dangerous) tools, different materials and your hands is an important skill for every Hacker to master.
Attention to Detail
Most technology has multiple parts which must work together seamlessly for it to function properly and to specifications. This requires an attention to detail above and beyond the normal levels. "Details matter; it's worth waiting to get it right." - Steve Jobs
