|Overview:||Game jams are fun and great learning experiences, but how do you translate what you did in a game jam into skills for a resume? How can a game jam land you a job in the games industry? How do you turn a game jam game into a shippable product? In this talk, we will discuss strategies for game jamming, practical and networking skills development, and moving from a prototype to a shippable product. We will also examine how to frame and market game jam experience for roles at game studios, use the skills from game jams as part of daily game development work, and how to meet and overcome challenges with jamming. By highlighting the value and power of game jams, we hope to encourage and empower more people to participate in jamming as a way into a game career and beyond.|
