The next big event for the chapter is Global Game Jam which is happening Jan 28-30.  It will take place Friday evening through Sunday evening. It is most likely being hosted by Spy Hop at their downtown SLC school and rooftop location. Full schedule and sign up site are coming soon. We need volunteers for chaperones, check-in, set up, take down, seeking sponsors, and cleanup! Please email vazo...@gmail.com with your availability.
Thank you!

I'm curious here.  On the website, they say it's running from the 20th to the 30th, with the theme reveal on the 16th/17th.  Is it a staggered release?

No, they are revealing the whole theme on the 16th on the front page of Twitch. We don't need to keep it secret any more. Right now the plan is still to watch the keynote together at the start of the weekend like usual, to get it fresh in our minds and to hear the inspiration right as we dive into the event. Some sites around the world with different school systems are starting earlier so that's why it says the 20th, but for our site, the main event is during the weekend like usual.

To get all the details, and to sign up, go here: https://globalgamejam.org/2022/jam-sites/igda-salt-lake-city
Note that the venue room has changed and we are now only in the Rooftop venue.
Special thanks to our sponsor SpyHop for the venue! Also they have a limited number of laptops we can use for anyone that wants to make games but doesn't have one. Be sure to think of those you might know who would benefit from this and have them apply by emailing vazo...@gmail.com with their situation. Application deadline is Jan 24th.

One week away!

Thanks to the generous sponsors listed on the website, we now have funds to provide some meals and help anyone that needs a little nudge to try attending. The accessibility fund allows us to request and make available things that people might need in order to join. Please take a moment to think about people you might not normally invite because of some need and let them know! They are invited and we can most likely accommodate their needs. 

Please email me at vazo...@gmail.com if you are planning on coming in-person so we can plan meals accordingly!

Be sure to let us know about important allergies or preferences that would make a difference in whether you attend, and we will use the funds to make it happen if possible.

There is a schedule in the details of the event here: https://globalgamejam.org/2022/jam-sites/igda-salt-lake-city

Thank you to Utah Geek Events for covering the sanitization fee and providing pizza!
