We’re looking for experts that would be willing to do a short talk/tutorial before kick-off on topics that would be useful to jam participants. Hit us up!

After 10 years of service, we say goodbye to our home in the Games Lab. This year we will be located in the JKCC/Glassroom at Merchiston Campus. 

Event will be live-streamed as always.

We will supply power and wifi, but please don't bring a big gaming pc, laptops much preferred.

You will receive an invite to the slack channel sometime after registering.
Closer to the event we will email out jammer info packs.
