In conjunction with the Game Mechanics Society, we are running a Game Programming Weekend open to students of Canterbury University at the Cass Field Station. Come and learn about game design and development, meet new and interesting people with similar interests and have a relaxing week in the great outdoors.
Here is a tentative outline of what you will be doing:
All projects will be released under the MIT license.
A centralised server will be provided for documentation, example code and source code management using continuous deployment (using git). You can use the central server for testing and also trying out other teams' projects. A central CouchDB server may be provided for games that require persistent storage.
If you'd like to attend but don't fall into this group, please still fill out the registration form and let us know about your experience and background!
The cost per student will be $50 to cover food and accommodation related expenses. We recommend that you also bring your own snacks (e.g. nuts, dried fruit, chocolate, drinks, etc). The Cass Field Station is fairly isolated and you won't find corner dairy within walking distance.
We have transportation available for up to 18 people at this time.
Once you have been accepted into the event we will give you details on how to make the payment.
You need to bring your own bedding (e.g. a sleeping bag), clothes, toiletries. Cass Field Station is cold so make sure you bring a warm jacket. There is a small possibility of snow so gloves/extra thick socks are recommended.
You will need to bring your own laptop along with any software you may need. Internet will be available using standard university accounts. You may want to bring headphones.
If you have special dietary requirements, please mention this on the registration form. We will do our best to be accommodating.
Each night, specific teams will be responsible for cooking and cleaning up. At the end of the event, all participants must help with cleaning up.
We expect all participants to be considerate of others.
We have limited places, so register now to avoid disappointment!
