A downloadable project

Our association, PALO ALTOURS (Tours, France) has been organising Real World Gathering for Game Jams since 2016, as well as Startup Weekends and other Hackthons since 2014.

After 10 Startup weekend, 8 Game Jams and some more Hackathons, we now have some experience to share... So we have put together a guide.
