Hi everyone at DonationCoder.Com. I stumbled onto your site and was so impressed by what I saw that I donated to you as soon as I determined that you weren't a scam (you just looked too good...). I am currently learning VB.Net 2008 and am making some pretty decent software along the way (if I do say so myself). I am currently working on a software suite for school kids that will be very useful (includes scheduling and a calculator for your marks). I am still working on it but I think that it will turn out as a fully-functional piece of software that would probably be worth a lot of money in a computer store. One thing that would be useful for me would be software that you wish that your kids had for school. Another thing that I am contemplating making is a database for school library's that lets them upload books that children borrow to the child's computer, so they know when it is due. This would be useful (I think). One project that I stopped working on but might pick up on again is a program for dog-lovers (such as myself) that you can use to give the dog a rough medical diagnosis when you type in symptoms of the dog disease.
I am also looking for other apps to make and would be more than happy to make them if they are good enough (worthy of VB.Net). The GUI of my software matters to me and I would like your input on any screen shots that I put up. I have a website, but I still need to set it up so I won't post the link just yet, for the sake of my dignity. I would like to eventually become an actual software writer for DonationCoder but for now I'm happy to start small.
I would like to post my software up eventually but really don't know where to begin. I guess my first question is: What software do you with that you have that you don't? And this doesn't have to be a tiny, 20 minute piece of software. What do you really wish that you could do on your computer that you just can't.
Thanks for reading.
PS. This is my first post, not only on this forum, but on A forum, so if I have put this post in the wrong section or done something wrong, please move / correct me. Thanks.
