Hackers are a big part of the tech industry, and they have been for a long time.
Hackers have been around since the early 1990s, but it is only in the last 10 years that they have really taken off, with many companies including Google having their own hackers and hacking communities.
Nowadays, the average hacker spends a lot of time in the company of other people who are doing the same job.
But this is no longer the case, with more companies using a team of hackers to protect their technology.
A company can now hire as many as four people as needed to protect its technology.
The first ever hackathon in the UK took place at the end of this year, and the first hackathon to have more than 50 people attending was held at HackInTheBox in Brighton, which attracted more than 200 participants.
