What if the next of these sorts of events took on a broader focus to include productivity apps as well?

I think that is an awesome idea. I see the Game Jam, or I guess in this case, App Jam, as a way to provide an online portfolio of what Livecode can offer users. I think that expanding the category will definitely encourage a greater number of participants, and ultimately provide an broad display of what can be produced using Livecode.

Hi Richard,
For sure the App Jam is a good idea but:
1) - when I started (late 2013 as a hobby) with LC was mainly the attraction towards Games (it seemed to be the quickest way to have one in the app store)
2) - a App implies more brain storming and knowledge (a professionally designed and coded one compared to a Jam Game)
3) - all over the internet Game Jams are thriving ...

4) - App Jam sound so good, so please start one ...

As a note: I think the really NEWBIE code learner will be more attracted to games as a start vs. an app (well I do love the Create it With LC program)

Regards,
Catalin

I can't wait for the LiveCode Game Jam...We have some incredible games to submit. When will we know if there will be one in 2015?
