Hello SGDC,
Due to our busy semester, we have realized that, logistically, there is no
other weekend to do Learn Jam other than next weekend (3/7/15). For this
reason, we will be removing the second day of Learn Jam :( and limiting the
event to three 3-hour courses.
Here's what you need to know:

   - *Learn Jam is Saturday, 3/7/15, starting at 10 AM in BC122 *unless we
   encounter unpredictable issues like last time.
   - As of now, *we have confirmed Construct 2 and Maya as our first two
   courses* and are awaiting word from AEC to determine if we will have a
   music course.
   - Tell your friends and *advertise through Facebook* ASAP.
   - And DuckSync, if you want.
   - A time-specific agenda will be released once we have heard back from
   - The event will *include breakfast, dinner, and snacks.*

I apologize for the short notice and reduced event, but due to the
increased amount of events this semester in addition to helping with
Games++, we were not properly prepared to host the planned 2-Day Learn Jam
so soon. In spite of this, we will still have a full day of fun, learning,
and free food and I fully expect this event to be a success. Even with
these changes, the event will be more thorough than last semester. Lastly,
we have another community event in the works which should more then replace
our second day of Learn Jam in terms of involving the campus with game
development. I'm really excited for the jam and I hope you all are too.

If you would like to pre-install Construct 2, simply download here:

If you would like to pre-install Maya (which you definitely should do),
follow these instructions:
1.) GO here: http://www.autodesk.com/education/free-software/maya
2.) Make an account with Stevens email
3.) Download Maya 2015 and install
4.) [Recommended] Run it at least once to make sure it's working

See you all Tuesday night at 9 as we delve back into Jacobus project in
addition to other new club project plans.
