Take Part In The Helpful Dev Jam


Take Part In The Helpful Dev Jam

Have you ever struggled with learning how to make games? Do you face-palm when you look back on your rookie coding mistakes?

Since Amazon doesn't sell time machines just yet (it's only a matter of time), we can't help you spare your blushes, but what if you could help the next generation of GameMaker coders avoid the same mistakes? And what if you could be rewarded for your good deed?

That's where The Helpful Dev Jam comes in!

Join our community on the GameMaker Discord server and share the various learning resources of your own making - from written guides, articles and tips, to full game projects, code, templates and videos. The most helpful resources will be featured on the GameMaker blog, and all of our finalists will receive a year’s free subscription to our Enterprise license. The submission period starts on 2nd of June and ends on 16th of June, so start planning. Join us in the #devjam_discussion channel to chat about the jam.
