Paul B This is about "Working on your project" instead of "Working in your project".  Most hack nights we have been working in our projects.  This is about working on your project, that is taking a step back, re-evaluating where you are, and making minor adjustments, and cleaning some external items up.

You'll have fun. During the weekend working alongside awesome people who
share your ideas. HACK KC is meant to be fun and entertaining so
enjoy it.
