Special Edition Newsletter for January 9th, 2009
Codename "NANY APPS"
This is a special edition of the DonationCoder.com newsletter, focusing entirely on the results of our recent programming event: N.A.N.Y.
Each year at DonationCoder.com we encourage the programmers who hang out on our site to release a new program on January 1st, to welcome in the new year. We call this the N.A.N.Y. challenge (New Apps for the New Year).
2009 has set a new standard for the DonationCoder NANY Challenge, both in quality and quantity of Released Applications. This year we had 44 coders of varying degrees of experience pledge to release a New Application for the New Year and by January 1st we had a whopping 35 New Applications posted on the NANY 2009 Forum.
Now the real fun begins: all the applications are free to use, and the forum is a great place to offer feature requests or report issues. Many of the Applications are just the start of something bigger and will be developed further, so it is also a good place to keep up with their development.
Congratulations to all the NANY 2009 Challenge Entrants! You've helped to make the NANY 2009 a great success.
Below you will find summary descriptions of each of the released programs, in their author's own words.
And please, consider making a donation to our site and sending some credits to these authors to show support for their efforts.

Thanks again to everyone who helped make this event so much fun. And a very special thanks to Perry Mowbray for doing a stupendous job organizing this year's event -- it would not have been possible without him.
