Leeds Service Jam starts 6pm on Friday

Only a few days to go now. Here’s the info we’ve sent to everyone getting ready for the 2015 Leeds Service Jam. We’re delighted to have over 20 jammers taking part. If you’ve booked but know you are no longer able to attend please email matt@mattedgar.com

Getting there

ODI-Leeds is on the third floor of Munro House, Duke Street, Leeds, LS9 8AG. Munro House is located on the corner of Duke Street and York Street, opposite Leeds bus station and next to the BBC building. The nearest car parks are at Quarry Hill and Leeds Markets.

On arrival

Registration will take place on the ground floor from 6pm on Friday 27 February. We’ll give you a jam participant form and Creative Commons license. After signing in, you can go up to the ODI space on the third floor. We’ll start the welcome presentation at 6:30pm.

Key timings

Friday’s session will run until 8:30pm when we’ll stop and go to a nearby bar or restaurant. On Saturday, you can arrive from 9am and we’ll get everyone together for a briefing at 9:30am. Jamming will run until 5pm. On Sunday, the space will be open from 9:30am with a 3pm deadline to upload all our work to the Global Service Jam site. We’ll do an end of jam show and tell and wrap up by about 4pm on Sunday.

Food & Drink

We’ll provide lunch on both days. We want to make everyone feel welcome, so if you have special dietary needs and didn’t mention them on the Eventbrite booking form, please can you let us know by the end of Thursday.

Tell everyone

If you’re tweeting about the event, don’t forget the hashtag #GSJam for the global event. Please remember, the global theme stays secret until all the cities to the west of us know about it too – we’ll let you know when it’s safe to share that during the event.

What to bring?

It’s going to be dress down/lots of hands on stuff over two days, so please just wear whatever makes you feel comfortable to jam. There’s no need to bring anything, but here’s a checklist of things that may be helpful if you have them: Computers & Cables – Cameras and cables/SD cards – Tablets/Phones – Any design tools that you would like to share in groups that may help – Know-how on prototyping – Children’s toys and figures – Box of Lego to share within your group – Your playful side… silly hats/wigs/scarves/squeaky toys.

Anything else?
