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 School of Computing, NUS, on the 23rd and 24th 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

For any queries, please email coreteam@nushackers.org or leave a message in the official Facebook event at https://www.facebook.com/events/853566928089916/


This event is open only to:

  • Students of all levels in any educational institution in Singapore (yes, exchange students count as well!)
  • Anyone waiting entry into an educational institution - e.g. NSFs, PhD candidates, etc. 

Non-students are welcomed, but won't be eligible for prizes.
