For my final year at university I put together a team and entered Ludum Dare 40. The point was to add extra forms of production to a normally chaotic Games Jam. Then at the end i wrote an eBook about the experience.
The first half of the book looks at all the pre planning a producer can do and how they can set your team up for the best possible jam.
