In 2021, the Central Florida Tech Grove partnered with the Indienomicon Foundation to host the inaugural Armed Forces Jam, utilizing the "game jam" approach to rapidly prototype solutions to military training needs. Game jams have been around for 20 years and utilized primarily in the commercial game development industry to accelerate the creation of initial prototypes of games. Join us to learn more about the game jam process, when it makes sense to use it, and the value it offers. Hear how game jams are a highly effective tool for engaging non-traditionals in addressing military simulation and training needs, provide very inexpensive and fast confirmation of the viability of a solutions approach, and where the jams fit in the spectrum of rapid prototyping methodologies.
