Chris Hanscom, the brains behind Veign.com, is a developer and web designer, and has been a member and friend of DonationCoder since we started in 2005.  His most recent web project is Open Menu, based on his entry in last year's NANY event on DC.

Recently Chris contacted me about the idea of him donating a copy of Microsoft's MSDN and Visual Studio Bundle to be given away on DC.  It's an extremely valuable thing, and he asked what i thought the best way might be to give it away.

In the past we have had a programming contest for such things, but he and I agreed that this time the best thing might be to honor someone who has been just out of control in the last year or so creating coding snacks for people who request them in the Coding Snacks section.  I'm talking of course about DC member Jody Holmes, aka Skwire (see his page of software here).

Chris readily agreed, and so on behalf of DC i'd like to thank Chris and Veign.com for such a generous gift, and congratulate Skwire on receiving it!





ps.
Chris tells me he will be giving away another copy of the Visual Studio/MSDN bundle on his blog, which is excellent by the way, so stay tuned to that if that's something you are interested in.

Jody certainly deserves this.

I'm positively humbled to receive such a gift.  Thank you, Chris and mouser.  Thank you to the DonationCoder members, too, for all your kind words and endless Coding Snack ideas.  It's extremely rewarding to create them for everybody and I enjoy (most smiley) every minute that I work on them.  Without you all, there would be no Coding Snacks section.

No doubt we'll all now expect not just coding snacks but full repasts!

C'mon over, I'll fire up the grill.  cheesy
