A couple of interesting hackathons are coming up:
- October 4-7th: Ludum Dare October Challenge – The challenge is to monetize a game. Win the challenge by earning $1. You can monetize a game you’ve already made (or make a new one).
- October 11-12th: Tizen Hack, an in-person jam in NYC for making an app for the Tizen app store. I’ve never heard of it before, but it was done by the Linux Foundation and supports HTML5 or C++ for app development, so it sounds interesting.
- October 11-13th: Asylum Jam, where the goal is to create a horror game that does not use mental illness or psychiatry as a source of fear. Nice Halloween-themed game jam for a good cause.
