This thread is for programmers to pledge that they will participate in NANY 2010.

The Challenge
  • Pledge that you are participating well before the New Year (you shouldn't just wait until Dec 31 to reveal whether you decided to participate or not); DECEMBER 18 is a good date to shoot for to pledge to participate.
  • Release the application on or before 31st December 2009.
  • Any type of application can be included: Windows, Linux, Mac, Web, iPhone, Android, Script, Plugin, etc., but it needs to be a new program that hasn't been released publicly before November 2009 (updates to existing programs don't qualify unless they are complete rewrites).
  • You don't have to be affiliated with DonationCoder.com - you still get to announce it as part of the N.A.N.Y. Challenge: you keep all the rights to your software, this is just an event to encourage coders to release new free tools.


The Pledge
Feel free to tell us as little or as much about what kind of program you are planning on releasing -- but let's keep this thread just for pledges, not for discussions.

We'd like to encourage everyone who wants to participate to make a pledge to do so -- and to treat this pledge as a real promise to release something.

Mini NANY
We've decided to also have Mini NANY Pledges and Entries for those who would like to contribute something that doesn't quite fit as a full NANY. See the Announcement. For Example:
  • Your entry is not substantial enough for a full entry (For example, I have an idea for a tiny little script that's a bit of fun, and something that's not on the same page as the other Entries).
  • Your entry will not be completed (maybe these could be used as a partnership with other entrants?).
  • Your entry is not a real NANY.

We hope that Mini NANYs allow even more people to join the fun.  thumbs up

What's Next?
  • Volunteers can be found in the Offers of Assistance Thread that may be able to help you with your Pledge.
  • Ideas can be found in the Program Suggestion Thread if you need some help with where to start.
  • When you're ready to let everyone in on your idea, create a New Teaser Thread in the NANY 2010 Board.
  • When you're ready to show everyone what you've done you can change your "Teaser" into a "Release", and manage the project in your RedMine space.

Thanks for all your Pledges: Made and coming   Thmbsup Thmbsup

I pledge to release a new utility for NANY 2010; i have no idea what it will be yet, though it will be something small (I was originally intending tfdocs to be my NANY project but couldn't wait to unveil it).

I pledge to release something for NANY 2010. Whatever it is, it will probably be cross-platform for both Windows and Linux (and maybe OSX too)

I pledge to soak skwire in superglue and applying bubblewrap to prevent his multiple entries reaching this year's NANY.
And to release something.

I pledge to release one or more somethings this year. (that's allowed, right?)  Last year was awesome, working on my app and then seeing all of the cool apps created by others.  I cannot wait!

"Somethings" are allowed (and encouraged)... I'll have issues with more than 3 somethings tho'  Sad

I pledge to "organize" the "Garden Social Club."

I applaud those that refuse to commit "intellectual suicide."

Truth, unlike opinion, tradition, etc. will always be able to stand on its own.  Truth is not a static, but a living entity and will perpetually impart life; therefore, any "truth" that does not or can not impart life can not be Truth.

I am persuaded the only reason bad men have succeeded is not because good men have done nothing, but that good men did not do enough.

Okay 2 questions:
1. If this is NANY 2010, why does it need to be completed by the end of 2009?
Quote
•Release the application on or before 31st December 2009.
...Missing something am I?

2. I do have one completely unreleased application that is (in beta) an in-house (work) project. I have permission from the companies owner to do a limited (i.e. to a single site/forum) release of the application which is a network scanner that finds printers on the network & collects information about them that can be sorted, saved to .csv/.tsv, and to a limited degree edited (which can also update the printer). The application is "Branded" with the company logo and lists me as the author. So...(Man that's a long freaking question)... Would that be acceptable as a NANY submission?

we had some debates over what year label to assign, but we ended up deciding that NANY2010 would celebrate the release of programs on Jan 1, 2010, and so on.

as for applicability of the program:  as long as it hasnt been previously released to the public, and its free or donationware for personal use, it qualifies.  thumbs up

Well being that it's (a network administration tool) part of a larger (currently in development - on the back burner) Printer Management Suit that's most likely useless for small home networks ... For DC members it will be free for both personal & commercial use.

It's kinda like a stripped down version of HP's WebJet Admin, main differences being mine is tiny, portable, and fast (you can scan a standard class C network with it in about 12 seconds).

Assuming anybody can use it (I hope), consider it pledged.
