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.
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.
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.
DurJam is an online game jam run by Durham University Computing Society (CompSoc) from 26th to 30th August 2020.
A game jam is an invention marathon where teams come together to rapidly develop a game. Participants learn, develop, and innovate together from around the world.
DurJam is open to current students and those who have graduated in the last year.
Please keep your teams to a maximum of 5 members. We can only offer prizes to the first 5 members of a team.
We recommend setting up a group chat to communicate with your team. It can also be helpful to video call and collaborate on code in real-time (codeshare.io and VS Code Live Share).
The Intellectual Property of your work remains with you.
You should submit your project on our Devpost. Only one member of your team needs to submit the project, then they can add you as a collaborator to ensure you are eligible for prizes.
Prizes will be awarded for the best submissions.
Learn something new at interactive workshops.
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.
