In-person locations

Here you can find the physical events for the jam. Anybody can open an in-person location, but we will all gather on the Discord server and work there together.


The Plovdiv location is the Technical University Sofia – branch Plovdiv. The in-person event in Plovdiv will be part of Sofia Game Night.

You can join our Discord server already now. In order to participate in person at the Technical University, we would like you to register first.


Note! Everybody can join the Discord server, but only people with registration will be allowed at the venue.

This is because we have a requirement from the Technical University to let only registered people at the event.

The rooms will be opened for registered participants from 18.00 to 00.00 on Friday and from 09.00 to 22.00 on Saturday.

Event schedule

November 4
Meet and greet

We will meet on Friday afternoon, at 18.00h and share the jam's theme that everyone can use for their game prototype. Then we will form the groups/teams from all the participants. Groups must have 2 to 6 participants. All the groups will be registered in Discord and get their own channel/room there.

20:00h - 00:00h
Start of the hackathon

All teams can start working on the prototype from Friday evening. The venue is open for the participants. It's up to them if they want to stay and work during the night or work from home.

We are planning to have mentors for each group, as the jam is short and it's the best way to learn and share knowledge.

We cannot stay all night at the University, so the participants and the volunteers have to leave until the next morning. The rooms will be locked at 00.00 on Friday and opened again at 09.00 Saturday morning.

There will be coffee, tea, lunch and dinner for all registered participants.

November 5
20:00h - 22:00h

We will all gather at the Discord voice channel at 20.00 where each group will have 5 min to present their project and demo the prototype. The presentations are open to everyone on the Discord server, not only the participants.
