IGDA Presents: 2016 Global Game Jam

Global Game Jam Returns!

The GGJ brings together talented individuals from within your community. It is a unique opportunity for people to push their skills and challenge their way of working. Participants work concurrently with developers around the globe; we rally around a central theme, and then have 48 hours to create a game. It’s our hope that we will see some very experimental realized prototypes that you can continue to work on after the jam. Many games developed in previous Game Jams have become fully realized games. The GGJ is open source, hardware & software agnostic and all projects are protected under a Creative Commons license. We encourage people to try out new ideas and push themselves, within reason. We also strongly encourage participants to remember to eat and sleep, to stay at their best!

The event is open to the public. No formal game development experience needed! Computer workstations and software will be provided; however, you are free to bring your own laptop or computer. Rooms will also be available for sleeping. Just bring your camping gear!

Friday, January 29, 2016 at 5:30 PM through Sunday, January 31, 2016 at 8:00 PM (PST) at Coleman University

Tickets are on sale at Eventbrite.

The Board of Trustees of Coleman University has announced that it unanimously elected Norbert J. Kubilus, CCP MBCS as the University’s next President & CEO during the Board’s meeting on Thursday, October 29th.

“I would like to congratulate and welcome Norbert to his new position,” said Mike Maier, Acting Chair of the Board of Trustees. “While we had a number of highly-qualified candidates, Norbert stood out for his experience as an executive and educator, as well as his proven leadership as Interim President since May. His record of achievement, personal history and values set him apart as the clear choice to carry our Vision, Mission, Institutional Learning Outcomes and Strategic Goals.”

Mr. Kubilus has been a member of the Coleman University Board of Trustees since June 2012 and served as Board Chair until he was asked to serve as Interim President in May 2015 while the Board conducted a Presidential Search. He is a career technology and operations executive who also has held faculty positions with New Jersey Institute of Technology and The College of New Jersey. Mr. Kubilus was also a Technology Leadership Partner with Tatum LLC and co-founded the Tatum Technology practice in Southern California.

“I am very honored to be the next president of Coleman University and am excited to engage the entire Coleman community to turn the dreams we have for the University into reality,” said Mr. Kubilus. “Our founder, Dr. Coleman Furr, was a pioneer in computer technology education when he and his wife Lois started the school 52 years ago. Coleman University today has a terrific team of faculty and staff with a ‘student first’ attitude and a passion for preparing our graduates to be leaders in technology-focused careers and their communities. ”

A graduate of Seton Hall University (BS) and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (MS), Mr. Kubilus is a Certified Computing Professional (CCP) in Technology Management and Software Development. He is author of over 70 professional and academic publications on technology issues affecting business, as well as a frequent conference speaker. Computerworld named him a Premier 100 Information Technology Leader in 2007. He is a Past Association President for the Association of Information Technology Professionals and an elected member of the British Computer Society.
