About the event:

hack-let / noun: a mini ‘hackathon’ [hackathon, derived from “hack” (a clever solution to a tricky problem‟) and “marathon”]

The Information Systems (IS) Department at the University of the Western Cape (UWC) is passionate about making a difference in the lives of students and communities.

With the high number of unemployed women in our country, this year we would like to:

1. Encourage female students to pursue careers in Information, Communication and Technology (ICT) and
2. To use ICT to solve women’s challenges.

Join us in a fast-paced and fun weekend to try and come up with ideas to make this a reality. The team with the best solutions will win great prizes.

Date: Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st August

Time: 8:30 – 17:00

Venue: Foss labs, 3rd floor, EMS building, University of the Western Cape

All students, especially females, are welcome. Refreshments will be provided.

Spaces are limited so please RSVP by 5 Aug 2016, no later than 12:00. For further information or queries please email the organisers.
