      FAQS

      Do I need to be an experienced designer/artist/coder to do GGJ?

      Not at all! GGJ is designed to accommodate people from all backgrounds and skill levels - so no previous experience is necessary.

      Do I need to be in a team?

      It's up to you! Being in a team is often more fun, but you're welcome to be a 'lone wolf' too.

      What's the food situation for GGJ24?

      Throughout the course of the weekend, drinks and snacks will be provided. The campus Costa is also (conveniently!) located just outside of the jamming rooms, so you could head there for hot drinks and more substantial meals. Chi Uni will also provide pizza on the nights of Wed (1st) and Thu (2nd). Please let your lecturer know of any food allergies prior to ordering.

      What's the accomodation situation for GGJ24?

      The SIZ shuts at midnight and it isn't possible to sleep in the building. So, alternative accomodation arrangements should be made. While a free bus service back to Chi campus still runs at this time, you may find it more convenient to stay with a friend on campus/in Bognor to save late night travelling.

      Must I stay around for the duration of the jam?

      While you're not obligated to stay for the entire period, you're encouraged to attend as much of the event as possible. GGJ is a really fun experience but it's also pretty intense - so, if you need to step out for the occasional 'sanity break' (e.g. going for a solo beach walk) just let your team know so they can schedule work effectively.
