What is Flow?

Flow is a social course planning website. Launched in September 2012, it was built by four students in Software Engineering at the University of Waterloo. What does the name mean? Well, we're not sure ourselves... we launched with it, and it just sort of stuck!

Flow is open-sourced

Want to contribute? Check out the code on GitHub.

Not sure where to start? Perhaps you can tackle one of these issues.

Want to fork Flow to be a white-labelled platform for your school? Awesome — go for it. Just be wary that the data scrapers are tied to Waterloo’s APIs.
