Hack&Roll is NUS Hackers' annual 24-hour hackathon, and the largest student-run hackathon in Singapore. In the spirit of hacking, we celebrate not just the most useful products, but also reward projects that are "awesome but useless" and for factors such as sheer overall coolness.
It will be happening at Cinnamon Tembusu Dining Hall, on the 21st and 22nd January. It’s completely free to attend, and students from all levels are welcome.
There are no limits or themes to the hacks.
Registration, along with more details about the event, can be found at http://hacknroll.nushackers.org
