Today, I discovered, and joined "1-Game-A-Month" or "1GAM".
This is a challenge of sorts, where the goal is to release a game every month. You get XP on the site as you release games and do other stuff, and it's a great way to get involved in the indie development community. There are no real rules, other than "make games" and I think it will be a great learning opportunity for me.
Any other game developers here should check it out, I'm positive they'll be running through 2014 as well.
