For the 7th year in a row, Global Game Jam is hosting the world’s largest hackathon (A marathon for gaming developers) where over 25k developers are coming together for one weekend in almost 500 locations worldwide to build games. This year the event takes place on the 23rd-25th January.
It’s a great opportunity to not only help inspire the next generation of programmers, but a chance for some of the best, smartest and most entertaining developers to gain international exposure to the rest of the gaming world.
Wewanaplay (a Birmingham, UK based gaming company) are planning to livestream the entire event from over 40 different Jamming locations around the world. Each team will be showcasing their event for an hour, helping to bring together the entire game developing community for the very first time on one channel. It’s a great way to showcase how different cultures tackle the challenge and show that even when we are miles apart, we can still come together for great reasons.
