ABOUT REGISTRATION

FREE for all to participate. Beginners welcome.

You can register as a solo programmer, team programmer, team designer or floating designer (*Learn more about designers below). Teams can consist of up to 5 people

Floating designers will be assigned one or more teams to work with in advance of the jam start

Programmers can be assigned a randomly formed team (*Learn more about team assignment below)

FLOATING DESIGNERS

The Floating Designer position is intended to help connect designers and programmers that would otherwise be solo or unable to participate. For best results we recommend a few things

Assignments will be made in advance and you'll have an opportunity to connect a day or two in advance of the jam. Use this chance to set expectations before the jam.

Tt's a good idea to prioritize needs and determine what is most critical versus nice to have. i.e. Maybe the App Icon is most important, but other images can just use the SF Symbols library if there isn't time.

Understand that Floating Designers will potentially be working with working with more than 1 team and will need to divide their time.

If you aren't sure where to start, trying starting from this framework:

Discuss a basic idea for the app before start. Share hours availability and set expectations as necessary.

Have a meeting early on the first day. Set a goal of getting an app icon and some theme colors delivered around 60% of the way through the jam.

Try to plan for a design review together 90% of the way through the jam to review spacing and font sizes.

ASSIGNED TEAMS

If you are interested in forming a team with others but need some help making the connections, you can register for team assignment. We'll ask you to tell us a little bit about your skill level and what you'd like to get out of the jam and do our best to help form teams.

Have a meeting early on the first day. Set a goal of getting an app icon and some theme colors delivered around 60% of the way through the jam.

Assigned Teams teams will not be assigned a floating designer.
