Game Jams are a great way to get to grips with game creation tools, network with new people, and try something brave. There is no pressure – simply create something new, be collaborative, have fun, and eat pizza. To celebrate the new College of Arts, Technology and Environment (CATE) – we’re putting on an extra special GGJ where all CATE students are invited to join in, meet students from across the College and create a new game in just 48 hours. So if you are a coding wizard, animation guru, art/illustration wonder, music/audio wrangler, 3D modelling legend, or just interested in what goes into making a game – we want you.
It’s been a great break but we’re back this week with our regular Workshop Wednesdays on the 11th, and we’re looking forward to seeing you all. Obviously having a break is great but seeing your lovely faces is something that makes us happy so pop along and say hi if you have some time.
We’ll also have a chat about the offerings as it will be great to advertise the specific workshops with a few more details. If you’re new to tech then it may suit you to learn to set up your own website for example? It’s a good option for using as a showcase for all your talents as you build up your skills – also a great idea for anyone wanting to transfer within their career. Other options are learning to use git/CS50 free BootCamp, Data science and machine learning, python and basically anything that anyone is willing to share with one another. We set up the place and get the drinks in and you can all sort out what you want to do – that’s the plan!
