What is Lifehack?
LifeHack 2023 is a hackathon organised by the Academic Liaison cell of NUS Computing Club. Lifehack is a platform for participants to apply their skills in coming up with creative solutions to improve interconnectivity within the community. In order to achieve this objective, the problem statements will challenge the participants’ ability to formulate and construct ideas that benefit the community. This event will be conducted in hybrid from 22nd May - 1st June.
