This year Griffith College Dublin are holding a Global Game Jam ( http://www.globalgamejam.org/) event and they are extending invitations to students from other Dublin institutes.
See the event site at ( http://www.gcd.ie/JAM/index.html) where entrants can get information on the event and what is required of them.
Entry is free, but the student must bring a machine to work on. The event is also open to the less experienced programmers who may use programs such as GameMaker and GameSalad.
The number of entrants is limited to 25, which is on a “first
come, first served” basis.
If you have any queries, contact Eoin Carroll, Course Director, Computing Faculty, Griffith College Dublin, South Circular Road, Dublin 8 or eoin [dot] carroll [at] gcd.ie
