What is the Oxford Geek Jam

Created by @loleg and @mattythorne, the Geek Jam is a response to the usual all talk, no action geek events. The premise is simple, you have one day to hack together a project, either decided on the day or suggested on this wiki, with a group of fellow geeksters. There is no skills requirement, just a willingness to learn and share.

Next Jam

Please use Which Weekend to say when you are free and join the Mailing List or Upcoming Event to find out about the next event.

Location, as always, will be The Jam Factory around the corner from the Oxford rail station. Visit their web site for some more details TheJamFactoryOxford.com, and please support this awesome Oxford venue by buying drinks, lunch or snacks and checking out works of local artists displayed around the building.

The day starts around 10:30am, so get there soon and join a team.

Suggested Projects

If you have an idea for a project for the next Geek Jam then head over to Project Ideas and add them there!

We are thinking about putting together something more permanent - creative shed? tech+arts collective? hackerspace? have your say on the Ox4HS wiki.
