One great global event with an Aberdeen presence

Friday, 26 February to Sunday, 28 February 2016, Aberdeen


What is Global Service Jam?

For GSJ people interested in service and customer experience will meet at locations all over the globe.

They will be designers, students, academics, business people, customers, mums, kids and grand-dads.

In a spirit of experimentation, innovation, co-operation and friendly competition, teams will have less than 48 hours to develop and prototype completely new services inspired by a shared theme. At the end of the weekend, their collection of brand new services will be published to the world.

Why should I come?

If you normally work on server-side things, this is your chance to get out and meet front-end people. If you normally do work with customers, then this is your chance to learn new skills .

This video will tell you some about why you should come:

Anyone can get involved!

Both events will be a high-energy, collaborative & freeform event, in which some of the brightest minds and lovely folk in Scotland (and even a few from further afield!) will get together to design new services in parallel with a whole host of jams across the world.

Anyone can get involved! While some coding skills would be useful for Hack the Government, Absolutely anyone can take part in Global Service Jam - you just need enthusiasm and a willingness to learn. We're hoping to have a good mix of people including students, practising designers, local businesses and anyone interested in service design!
