DeltaHacks V

This is McMaster’s annual Major League Hackathon (MLH), students in all fields of study will come together to build real world applications that create positive change. The difference between DeltaHacks and other hackathons is that elements of design thinking are embraced to make “hacks” that solve real world problems. The ultimate goal is to include, not only the engineering and computer science students, but all talented individuals from all backgrounds to collaborate, create, and bring ideas to life. Info and application is here.
