Event: Global Game Jam Middle East

The Global Game Jam which is a project of the international game developers association (IGDA) is coming to Jordan on January the weekend of the 28th till the 30th of January. The event will be free of charge and held at the SAE institue of Amman with the help of int@j , a non-profit organization dedicated to serving and growing the ICT and ICT Enabled Service Sector in Jordan.

The Global Game Jam event usually gathers people for 2 days and then using creative methods this group of people have to come up with a new game, whether an online application, board game or even a card game. It’s an interesting idea and could be a lot of fun for all the gamers out there, however for the serious game developers this would be a great opportunity to see how and what people think when they’d like to play a game also I’m pretty sure that you can pick up a thing or two from the event organizers that will on site.

You can register here for the event and can check their facebook page to see if there are any updates.

Having worked with top digital agencies and companies in the MENA region for the past number of years I'm now looking now to venture on my own with small side projects in online, SaaS products. Things I like include: gaming, sports, technology, social media, start ups, funny things and reading about new bright ideas.
