Global Game Jam 2013
At the end of this month, there is the annual Global Game Jam. It's an amazing and free worldwide event. The point? Create a team, and create a playable game within 48 hours based on this year's topic to be released at the start time.
Personally, this is my third year participating and I can be confident when I say that this is a truly incredible opportunity at development experience. Not only does it look great on a resume, but it is amazingly fun and provides a memorable time that will teach you more than you can possibly imagine in only 48 hours time. It is priceless, and yet it's free. Best part is, even if you crash-and-burn (been there), you still can learn a lot and have a wild time!
Artists, programmers, sound technicians, producers, and anyone who is a fan of games or game development are welcome to participate (even if only in a support role, the hidden weapon of EVERY team). Gather your team, or search for other participants on forums and social media to create a development team. You can also join one of over 260 jam locations in roughly 50 countries across the world to be grouped with other participants!
Sometimes, the greatest games of the jam come from teams of complete strangers
I encourage you to find out more, to participate, and possibly even share your progress/experience here! Have fun!
