On July 30th, 2016, Under the GUI hosted Vancouver’s First Official Hackathon for Youth – THE ULTIMATE CANADIAN YOUTH GAME JAM! This hackathon is an all day event for coders and non-coders to collaborate and create video games with industry professionals! It was a huge success and we can’t wait to do it again!
The Ultimate Canadian Youth (TUCY) Game Jam is a not-for-profit organization endeavouring to host hackathons (1) across the nation for youth with and without coding knowledge. We aspire to bring together kids with backgrounds who may have a specialized talent for technology, art, music, production, or just a kid interested in game development, and bringing them to collaborate on one ultimate game!
It’s not a competition so don’t sweat it!
