We would like to take this opportunity to invite the public to come down to Eastern Edge at 3:30PM this afternoon to see our jammers and their games in action. We have snacks and coffee, and we’d love to have you come down and see what it’s all about! There will also be a draw for a few door prizes!
It’s our last day at Eastern Edge and MUN, and we want to thank our sponsors: NL Film Development Corporation, Quidi Vidi Brewery, Other Ocean Interactive, and Celtx. A big thank you to Eastern Edge and the MUN CS Society for hosting us and helping so much, and to our volunteers and coaches.
Lastly, huge thanks and congratulations to all of our jammers! Great work folks!
Looks like we might be on the Atlantic news segment on TV this afternoon/evening. Check you listings!
While we have you, you should know that we’ve now updated the 2018 Game Jam page with event details. Take a look!
Our third and final prep session for the 2018 Game Jam will take place this Thursday, January 11th, starting at 6PM in room EN-2036 in the MUN Engineering Building, 2, 4 Kerwin Pl, St. John’s, NL
Tonight is Project Night for all the CTSNL folks. Lots of tech folks hack on their own stuff here, and we’re hoping our members will take advantage of this group to start percolating ideas for the 2018 Game Jam!
We’ll be at The Geek Bar at The Rock House Pub, 383 Duckworth, from 6-8PM this evening. Hope you can make it down!
October Event: Social at The Geek Bar!
Several members of our community are well into the proving stage of their businesses already, but for those who are still thinking about it (and for those building, really!), Startup Weekend is an opportunity to get out, meet others in the tech sector, prove out your idea, and generally have a business-driving good time.
Even if your own idea doesn’t make it past pitch night, the weekend can be valuable. You get to see how much can be accomplished in a short time, as well as learning what to think about in terms of audience and value when starting out.
Tonight at Jumping Bean on Elizabeth!

As they do every week, CTSNL are bringing all the hackers to the coffeehouse. Great place to talk shop while you eke out some prototypes.
I had a chance to visit our friends at SassyTuna a few days ago, and I was really impressed with what I learned. I’ve known them primarily for teaching kids art, but they also have music and game development classes, with up to 120 students attending their various programs, which is HUGE!
Ali, who was kind enough to guide me through their facilities, mentioned that Julie and some of the staff members also create advertisement games for businesses in the province, such as Fogo Island Run.
Really proud to see such a creative and innovative group of folks in our community. Hope we get to see you guys out and about soon!
Tonight at Bitters on the MUN campus NDev is hosting a talk about containers and performance. Worth checking out if you’re a tech-ish!
