In the context of a hackathon, the word "hackathon" is any event of any duration where people come together to solve problems.
! Single Hack (Unsingle Hack) is a 10-hour hackathon where students will form teams based on mutual interests, with the goal of bringing a software to real life to help people find their significant other. Projects will be judged not only on their scope and vision, but also for their ability to provide specific and quantitative outcomes.
! Single Hack is hosted by KWCSSA, which is the largest and most influential Chinese organization in the Kitchener-Waterloo area. We are open to students in any faculty from any schools and welcome you to join the !Single Hack community.
!Single Hack will be held at Party Room & Conference Room in Blair House
256 Phillip Street, Waterloo, ON
