UBC CS Students Love to Jam!

This January students, professionals and hobbyists from around the world gathered to create video games from concept to completion in 48 hours during the Global Game Jam.  Held at the UBC Life Sciences Institute this year, we are proud to report that our Vancouver chapter was the largest single-site Jam in the world with more than 150 participants all in one room, including over 90 of our UBC CS students!   An exciting and fun-filled community celebration of video-game development in Vancouver, you can check out the games and photos here and the video here.   Be sure to join us next year!
