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 online at Discord, on 8 and 9 January 2021. It is 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 https://hacknroll.nushackers.org/.
This hackathon is open to:
- Students who are studying in any Singapore educational institution, anywhere from primary school to graduate studies, and stay in Singapore
- Anyone awaiting entry into an educational institution (including NSFs and PhD candidates) and stays in Singapore
We are unable to accomodate international participants this time round as prizes and swag will only be delivered to addresses within Singapore.
Non-students are welcome but will not be eligible for prizes.
Build anything you want. Hardware projects are more than welcome!
