Global Game Jam stokes global development community

Jam sessions are where some of music’s most memorable masterpieces were born. They enable artists to collaborate to create new and exciting music that could only be born from that unique environment. Now, apply that concept to game development, and instead of a handful of people in one room together, you have hundreds of these rooms spread out across the world. Welcome to the Global Game Jam (GGJ) . The GGJ is an international non-profit organization that hosts annual game development jam sessions at over 500 locations in 93 countries, and these numbers are growing each year. These sessions happen at the same time, and center around a theme where developers around the world are challenged to come up with game concepts and create them.http://readwrite.com/2016/03/29/global-game-jam-a-win-for-developers-pr1/
