Global Game Jam in Trier

The Global Game Jam® (GGJ) is the world's largest game jam event taking place in physical locations across the globe. Think of it as a hackathon focused on game development. The first Global Game Jam® was held in January, 2009 with 1600 people jamming in 23 countries.By 2017, the event grew to over 700 sites in 95 countries with over 35,000 jammers!

Organizing a jamsite

Since 2016 I've been the main organizer of the GGJ Jamsite in Trier. In the first year, we had more than 50 attendants, 69 jammers in 2017 and 85 in 2018. As the organizer, I am responsible for the whole thing: Looking for sponsors, the venue, foods and drinks, registrations and so on.
