People are welcome from Wednesday 18:00 to acclimatize and socialize. Throughout Thursday we have an mini challenges and workshops, and in the evening we will have an informal group building session where groups will come up with a theme-related idea. On Saturday there will be presentations, voting and a small award ceremony, but it's really just about creating a good and cozy working atmosphere and realizing new ideas. If you have a super important project, you are more than welcome to work on that too.
The program might change and it's quite possible that we will include a lot of spontanious events, such as going to the old graveyard, getting a tour of the school, jamming some music, or clay sculpturing.
We like being challenged, learning new tech or getting anew perspective on things. Thursdays focus is to learn from eachother. There will be a short introduction to some subjects and people can work on it during the day.
If you have any suggestions, just let us know during the jam or on facebook.It will be something along the lines of this:
Exile was started as a new initiative by two organizers of Nordic Game Jam (worlds largest game jam), Tim Garbos and Jesper Taxbøl. They teamed up with the coziest place in Denmark: Vallekilde Højskole. At Exile there is less focus on competition and more focus on the social aspects such as playing games, having a beer, and getting to know some new nice people.
