The Montpellier real-world gathering was a great success, and hopefully we’ll be able to organise a similar gathering next time around :)

Here you can see Gaael and FlowerPower engaged in “witty” banter while Pierrec (in Black), Niavlys (blond), Doelia and company are hard at work. On the right you can see our buffet (the participants got a LOT of food) and Christmas tree, and perched up on top of the mainframe in the corner of the room is the web-cam we used to stream the event.

Ludum Dare at University Montpellier 2

Hi all :)

This is my second Ludum Dare and my 7th jam, though I still have a lot to learn about making games 😉 Here is my entry from last year.

I’ve organised an real-world gathering this year at the University Montpellier 2 with the help of Gaeel, my fellow Brit’ in Southern France, and a few other people. The faculty has been great, but we only had confirmation and security permissions at the last minute, so we can’t invite any more participants (though visitors can come by Saturday morning). There will be around 14 of us in total, including Guillaume from Swing Swing Submarine and Pierre from Oujevipo. It’s going to be legend… wait for it… dary!

We also plan to stream the event as of Saturday midday using the university’s web-tv.

That said the organisation has eaten up all my spare time this last fortnight and I have a number of projects to hand in next week, so I may have to hijack the dare to work on technology for either:

I’m a bit sad about this :'( Both of which are open-source projects – In this case I’ll develop code tangentially to the base… I’m not sure how kosher this is, probably not at all. I also predict that organisation during the event will eat up a considerable amount of the 48 hour period, so I may not end up with much  – that said I’m super psyched about this event and happy to provide others will a cool working environment :)

Happy New Dare everyone 😀

 

Productivity (maybe (later))

Food photo for me and pythong (picture related).

Meetup at university, with three kinds of Fritz Cola and tasty food (except we forget plates).

Now if the wireless was a little bit more stable for me… :)
