I can proudly report that 4 of my students of participated at the Austria Game Jam (and therefore at the global game jam). One project -called monkeydoner was submitted during 48 hours, consisting of 3 little games. All programmed with python / pygame using Ubuntu Linux.
One of the sub-games was inspired from an example out of the pythongamebook.
The Austria Game Jam helped me to see other programmers (some also using python/pygame) working with incredible speed and talent. I got valuable input for my pythongamebok.
Sadly i found no time to submit a game myself or become useful for the team i joined, because i was too busy helping out the team of my students.
