The Jam is a free event, we will be providing coffee! Meals are not provided.
The room ACW103 will be opened, equipment and information about ACW103 can be found at: https://facilities.ampd.yorku.ca/facilities/transmedia-lab/
Due to size issues and equipment available the jam will be capped at 40 students.
We will be forming the teams at the day of the jam and will try to organize it in a way in which people with different skill sets will be grouped together.
The jam will end (on Sunday) with everyone playing the games made during the weekend, this will be open for other folks who are not part of the jam.
Be respectful of the Jam and your fellow Jammers! This is meant to be a fun time for everyone, so please be considerate!
This is a fun event, not a competition and will be treated as such.
No Alcohol or drugs are allowed
