Last weekend was full of the game development goodness - I've organized Warsaw Game Jam, the first edition of the Global Game Jam. Thanks to our amazing sponsors - Mozilla and GitHub, we could provide cozy place with good Wi-Fi, food and drinks (mostly beer and pizza) for everybody during the whole weekend. It wasn't only the Game Jam itself, but we were working hard for the Mozilla Game On competition and thinking about fulfilling One Game a Month at the same time. On sunday evening we even had a meet.js meetup with some guys from the Firefox OS team!
In the next three weeks, on January 25th-27th there will be a Global Game Jam - 48h coding marathon for game developers. I'm organizing the Warsaw Game Jam, and there will be three events during one weekend: Global Game Jam mentioned earlier, Mozilla Game On competition and an initiative called One Game a Month. If you're near Warsaw on that weekend come join us!
The video of my talk from the onGameStart 2012 conference about the js13kGames competition is already online, so you can watch it if you like. I'm still a newbie when it comes to public speaking, but I'm trying as much as I can, so please be forgiving. Now, go check it out!
The second edition of the first ever fully HTML5 games conference - onGameStart - has just ended. It was a great experience and I'm happy I was part of it. Thanks to Michał I had the chance to speak about the js13kGames competition which ended just a few days ago.
There's only three weeks left to the onGameStart 2012 conference and some info about the venue, agenda and a party was released. My speaking at the conference was also confirmed - I'll give a talk about the js13kGames competition.

As usual when I publish the list of the winners I just want to edit my original post with the contest, but this time I'll make an exception. All because of the one answer that just get beyond my 'amaze me' statement. It's just a pure essence of the contest and the idea behind the conference.
I made a small promise at the end of the previous post and now I can reveal the secret: thanks to Michał Budzyński, event organizer, you'll have the very first chance of getting the ticket for upcoming onGameStart 2012 conference! That's right, you can't buy the tickets yet (although it will be possible very soon), you don't know the price, but you can get one already!
