Experienced jammers have the opportunity to share their knowledge, and lead new people into game development - in the form of a collaborative game jam!
Inexperienced jammers & first timers have the opportunity to learn, and receive guidance and mentor-ship.

Buddy Jam is a sharing of knowledge and experience - and a demystifying of the game development process.
