Is it too early for NANY?

(1/1)

tinjaw:
Mouser,

I have an idea for what I would like to code for the upcoming NANY. When will the festivities officially commence?

mouser:
My votes it to do NANY from December 1st to December 31st.
What does everyone else think?

For more info on N.A.N.Y. see:

Basically -- its an event where we encourage all programmers (amateur or pro) who hang out at donationcoder to create a new (previously unreleased) program, to be released on January 1st of the new year.  NANY = New Apps for the New Year.

We had a theme last year but not the year before -- we can decide if we want to do one again.

Reward = Custom DonationCoder mug + fame + fortune + a few donations.

tinjaw:
I would like to ammend mouser's suggestion to allow for exceptions.  :P

I will be going on vacation for three weeks in the Czech Rebublic starting on the 20th of December and I will be busy the few days before preparing for the trip.

If it is OK with mouser and the other folks here, I would like to be able to work on it Nov 15 - Dec 15. All other rules would apply to me except my timeframe would be shifted by a few weeks.

The application I have in mind is a replacement for the defunct Password Construction Kit. I would like to use it as my first IronPython project.

mouser:
There is no problem at all with finishing starting or finishing your application before the time frame.. and in fact we have always encouraged people to release unofficial betas as we lead up to the jan 1 date, so that's completely fine.
