26th – 30th August

So, what's this then?

DurJam is a digital event open to all students, run by Durham University Computing Society, where teams of five or less aim to make a game of their choice within 96 hours.

I have no team?

No problem! If you’ve got a pre-made team, go for it. But if you’re solo, we’ll put you in a team based on your expertise.

Or even better, head over to our Discord server, and say hi to the lovely people in the #find-a-team channel.

Do I need to be able to code?

Nope! All you need is an enthusiasm for technology, for your project, and for learning something new.

There's much more to successful team than just programming. And you'll probably learn a tonne during the event.

And just while we’ve got your attention...

DurJam is just one of the many events that Durham CompSoc is running as we approach DurHack, CompSoc’s annual flagship hackathon.

Last year, we provided the mentors, APIs and hardware to empower over 200 hackers to come together and build something great, in just 24 hours.
