#procjam is a jam about making generative software - computer programs that make things when you run them, like art, music, games, stories, wallpapers, recipes, poetry or anything else you can think of. It's an exciting, different way to be creative, and PROCJAM is here to help you get started, find friends, and have fun with it!
#procjam just has one rule: Make Something That Makes Something. You can enter a Twitterbot, a videogame, a dice table, an artwork, anything you can think of. Whatever you make, let us know what you're up to! Tweet with the hashtag #procjam and don't forget to submit your work to the jam using this page when you're done.
PROCJAM is for everyone. Here are some things you need to know:
Earlier this year we asked people what they wanted from PROCJAM, and the number one answer was: more PROCJAM! So this year we're experimenting with a bonus Summer Jam. It's the same PROCJAM you know and love, but without all the extra bits like talks and videos (they'll be returning in November for our main event!)
We have amazing resources you can use that we've built up over the last four years, including:
Our summer jam has some optional summer themes! If you want to get a theme, pick your favourite from the list above, or roll a dice to pick one randomly! You can also use this tool from Random.org:
We also have a special optional challenge for people this year! It's perfect for people who are looking to do something a little more relaxed but still take part in PROCJAM. Sometimes jams can feel like they're all about working too hard and burning out. For this challenge, we're asking you to spend no more than one hour a day on your PROCJAM entry. A perfect way to do this is to make a Twitterbot with Cheap Bots Done Quick. You can get your bot up and running very quickly, and then gently add text to it throughout the week.
Whatever you make, however you make it, and whenever you finish it - please, please let us know and keep in touch. You can find our Discord details on our website, or post on Twitter with the #procjam hashtag! Happy generating!
