We decided to prototype Hacker's Cookbook, a winning idea posted by Ashwin Gopi, one of our club members at NYU. After a lot of brainstorming, we decided to shift the idea from an online platform (the "cookbook") to an experience based- idea: the kitchen! We applied for a small grant from the NYU Prototyping Fund and with the money, we run a workshop to prototype our idea and test some of our assumptions. See below for our learnings: the good news is we will do more Hacker's Kitchen workshops as there is clearly an appetite for them!
