Overview

Hacking is building things that you always wanted to have but no one has built it yet. It's to come up with an amazing idea and work tirelessly on it. It is to fail, fail again and fail better. Try out new things and learn while doing that. It's to work together, collaborate and build things that are innovative. It is to be a better programmer.

With that spirit, The University School of Information Communication & Technology in association with Ultrahack and Codestreet, is conducting a hackathon - UHack and invites all developers and hackathon enthusiasts to participate in an interesting and engaging hackathon.
