Jam Site Description: 

This year's jam is going to be a little different than usual, but we're going to make it work! There is no physical location for this jam, everything is fully online. We will be organizing and communicating primarily with Discord. You can join with this link: https://discord.gg/TqvSkbFpdE

Anyone is welcome to join regarless of location. Times are all East Coast US (EST). We will be primarily communicating via Discord.

You don't need to come with a team already, you can group up after the theme has been announced. Additionally, you can work in any group size you wish, though 2-5 people is best for this event. Collaboration is the name of the game here.

Any questions before the jam can be directed to [email protected]
