    It doesn't matter where in the course you are. Everyone is welcome at the game jams.

    I say this next thing, not to put you off, but to help you prepare better: No, the design course will not make you a useful person at a game jam. You need to be learning additional skills, making art, learning scripting, team management, communication of ideas, game balancing, etc.

    I'm not sure if I agree with this entirely. A designer can be a valuable asset to the team.

    The problem is that the design course is so popular, that most game jam teams have too many designers and not enough programmers So yes, it's very helpful if you have other skills to contribute to the team.

    I'm not saying a designer isn't useful, far from it (look at my signature - I AM a designer). I'm saying, the T2G design course, which is based entirely around writing documentation, doesn't prepare someone for a game jam!
