#FtDtJam Part 2 :: Finding Your Bearings

An anything jam for everyone, but especially neurodivergent and otherwise marginalized folks! Please feel free to join at any point in the year even if you didn't do the earlier jams!

Theme (advice, for year-long projects)

This is the season to really make sure you've got the ball rolling.

Before it was pinball but now it's bowling!

Now is the time to have picked your toolchain, even if it's not perfect. Planning should hopefully be finished, having resulted in a coherent set of milestones, and all that work is paying off as you proceed with the tasks at hand. If you want, code is getting written, copy is being written, and chapters are being chaptered!

Prompt ( optional, for season-long projects)

Surf and Turf!

Ideas like skateboarding, ocean navigation, or whatever!

About #FtDtJam

Finish the Damn Thing Jam is a five-part, year-long series of jams hosted on Itch.io. Bring an existing or brand-new project to get it to its next releasable state over a year's time. Each seasonal jam will last just over 2 months, and will have a theme to help you structure your project management. For folks that want to participate and make smaller, single-season projects there will also be an optional prompt for each season as inspiration.

The point of this jam is to clearly define the minimum viable product (MVP) for your project, and then reach that as your goal for the year. Importantly, it is structured to not overwork yourself, and to still reach your goals.

Project management is a skill, and we hope to help you learn it and practice it. We've set up the jams to provide you with structure and tools to help you develop the skills you need to get the Damn Thing done now and in the future!

Who It For

If you've had trouble finishing projects, find yourselves loving the start of projects but not the ends, or needing help with skillsets that you don't have, we hope that this set of jams will move your projects forward.

We've had a lot of trouble getting our Damn Things finished, and as marginalized folks ourselves (neurodivergent, trans, Indigenous, disabled/chronically ill), we want this to be a space for folks like us to build our project management skills and community!

Marginalized folks (BIPOC, Trans, Gay, etc) comfort and safety will be particularly prioritized.
