It seems every time I talk to my non-engineering friends about joining a hack-a-thon they give me a weird look and think I am doing something illegal like hacking into websites or something.

Imagine the stereotypical indecipherable green 1's and 0's being printed to a terminal representing "Hacking data" that the media likes to show whenever they talk about illegal hacking. This program satirizes that.

What it does

The program randomly generates a "0" and "1" and then randomly chooses to generate a newline afterwards with probability 1/40.

How I built it

By spending like 5 minutes programming it.

Challenges I ran into

I ran into some small issues making the text green, so I had to download a library to do that.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

I'm proud that I can now fool my non-engineering friends into thinking that I am a top tier hacker.

What I learned

The program did not fool anyone at Polyhacks.

What's next for HackerNet

Run the program everytime at future Hack-A-Thons to show off my true Hacking Skills!
