Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How do teams get chosen

A. You will form your own teams. The opening ceremony starts at 6 pm, but we encourage you to show up at 5:30 so you can meet others and formulate a team.

Q. I'm new to programming. I don't know if i'll be able to make a game in 2 days...

A. If you're worried you won't be able to contribute, fear not! you'll be working along side experienced programmers and artists that will be more than willing to help you. Our club has members of ALL SKILL LEVELS! Whether you're a freshman CS student, or a professional developer, we encourage everyone to participate! Plus, Artists and Musicians are a hot commodity! If you can't program, a team will probably need someone (you!) who can create assets.

Q. The event lasts the whole weekend?! What am I going to eat?

A. Don't worry! FOOD WILL BE PROVIDED! Breakfast, lunch and dinner! Here's an idea of what we'll be eating

Breakfast - Bruegger's Bagels

Lunch - Jimmy John's

Dinner - Chipotle (Saturday) and Little Caesar's (Friday)

Q. Do I have to stay the whole time?

A. No, but if you are going be absent for a period, please tell your team!

Q. What should I bring?

A. Water, water, water! stay hydrated! Also, you should probably bring a jacket. It can get pretty cold up there!

We hope to see you there!
