Microsoft is teaming up with Playcrafting SF to present Tool Jam! Join us for a weekend hackathon as we gather to create helpful software tools for game developers.
Developers of all sizes, backgrounds, and budgets face the same technical roadblocks and challenges. It may be as simple as common repetitive tasks that could be automated, or as innovative as a new SDK that will become the industry standard for AR/VR development. Instead of creating a prototype or pitching a concept, we want to bring together top-tier developers to create tools that will help people immediately. These tools won't exist until we come together and make them.
All code made during the event will be released open sourced on GitHub, so that everyone will benefit from the tools created. Developers trying to solve their own problems they face in their current projects will help themselves as much as they will be helping the next generation of game developers.
