1) Tinkering, programming, building furniture with an axe.

2) Breaking and entering in the electronic world.

I assume the OP meant #1, although when I talk about "hacking" in this
sort of sense, I'm thinking more in terms of tinkering with the
language itself (Python scripting is writing .py files and running
them, Python hacking is grabbing the source, fiddling with it, and
running make). Unfortunately the second sense of the word is the only
one a lot of people know.
