Have you signed up for the NYGM Hackathon yet? Plus more Game Development Workshops!

NYGM, you're go for launch.

NYGM and are hosting a 24-hour hackathon the weekend of March 9-10 to celebrate the launch of the new platform, and we'd love it if you joined the fun!

We're your Mission Control:

We've got you covered with snacks, drinks, space to hack in, and plenty of co-pilots for your creative endeavors. You'll also be getting exclusive early access to the SDK and developer resources, and we'll be sending Mission Briefings starting at the end of February to help you get ready to hack.

Prep for flight:

Bring your laptop. Bring your talent. Bring your imagination. Bring your favorite collaborators. Bring your space helmet (if you have one!).


T-Minus 25 days and counting:

The event starts on March 9 at 11am (with a pre-flight meal to get you fueled-up, and team matchmaking if you need to assemble a flight crew) and the hacking goes from 1pm - 1pm. Demos and awards will follow lunch on Sunday, and you'll be able to rocket home in time to rest up for Monday.

Your landing coordinates: HQ in the AOL offices (770 Broadway, 6th floor)


More details coming soon! Assemble your flight team and get ready for LAUNCH!
