The NANY Year End Event at DonationCoder.com

NANY stands for "New Apps for the New Year", and the NANY event represents the playful and generous spirit of the DonationCoder.com site and the people who visit it.

During the NANY event coders of all abilities are invited to create a new free application or web service for the public.  The event culminates in a month long celebration of software on DonationCoder.com.  Read more:

As of today, you can watch video screencasts of each of the 30+ NANY entries from this year, and download and use any of the brand new applications!





Start with these entries
There are some real showstoppers here -- some very polished cute little programs and some unique power tools.

After you've checked out the above entries you might want to check out these
Some of these may appeal to a narrower audience, or be a little rough around the edges, and some might be considered proof-of-concept prototypes.






NetLaunch
NetLaunch is designed for use on a computer (probably a netbook), which is often going in and out of wireless access.  The idea is that NetLaunch will sit as a background agent, and check network status.  On status change, the program will launch/quit programs depending on user-defined rules.  Still needs a bit of polishing.
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6cL0Jy6KLg8" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6cL0Jy6KLg8</a>



Park Cursor Aside
Whenever you type on keyboard or in an edit box, Park Cursor Aside automatically parks (moves) the cursor aside to a defined screen position, so that your view of the document is not blocked by the mouse cursor.
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tum77fvQNZA" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tum77fvQNZA</a>

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gze2pmBp9ow" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gze2pmBp9ow</a>



NANY Excuse Manager
An inside joke for NANY participants: it lets coders submit excuses for being late presenting their entries.
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bz97uau4Wio" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bz97uau4Wio</a>

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7CiCq_6nyyI" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7CiCq_6nyyI</a>



Treat Yourself Nicely
An unfinished system tray utility that you query when you want to have a snack -- if you don't wait long enough you will be denied.

Proof of concept utility that checks definitions on multiple sites at the same time and displays them in a single window.
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iM1V8iT4IoU" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iM1V8iT4IoU</a>



Crush Sniffer
This is a proof-of-concept pair of Linux and Windows tools that go hand in hand and let you examine some common log files from your Linux system on a Windows pc.

FScript2
FScript2 is an advanced plugin wrapper for Find and Run Robot that allows coders to write plugins in Javascript.  NOTE: FScript version 2 is a major attempt to simplify updating but it is still in a very experimental alpha stage and shouldn't be used unless you are an early beta tester/developer.

I'd like to thank personally all the 34 DC members who pledged 48 NANYs this year and the uncountable members that offered suggestions, feedback and other support! This year was certainly a remarkable year:


Not every pledge ended up as a Released NANY, but everyone (Pledger or Volunteer, Released or not) helped to contribute to a NANY Event that was full of experimentation, discussion and volunteering... but most of all (from my way of thinking): productive good fun.

I'd like to encourage you all to support these members who have so generously helped us celebrate the New Year:


NOTE: I think this link will show you all NANY participants in one page to donate to.

Hooray!!!!

Please everyone if you have some donationcredits in your account, send a few out to some of the NANY participants (and PERRY too!), and let them know you appreciate their work.

The truth is, NANY could not happen if not for Perry Mowbray -- he is the one who keeps everyone going, and who makes sure everything happens on time.  On behalf of everyone at DC, thank you again Perry.


NOTE: I think this link will show you all NANY participants in one page to donate to.



Thank you Perry for taking such good care of NANY this year!  It was really fun this year  Thmbsup

What a cornucopia!

An outstanding event, with stellar entries and magnificent management. Many, many thanks to Perry, of course, but let's not forget the self-effacing mouser!

I don't think I can adequately put it into words: but it is very much a team effort, and as Chris says, would not happen without mouser or the other extremely generous members here. It's what makes DonationCoder unique.

Other than perry, what makes NANY work is the group of coders who hang out at DC, who embrace these kinds of events and projects.  It's always a bit scary when we announce these things -- worrying that people won't participate.  I can't tell you how much I appreciate everyone who took the time to jion in and release something.  It makes the site a fun place to hang out and it feels like a family gathering and a fun a party in here.

Thanks to all, specially Perry and Mouser, for making NANY 2011 such a big success  Thmbsup

They are the pillar whose encouragement brings out the best from the developers. I am the one who had doubt in my ability of the application, if they were even worth mentioning here. Now see what I got in return, praise and recognition  smiley

Thanks a lot. Hope to do something more in next NANY too

Please help us get out the word about the NANY2011 wrap up!  Especially to other sites that have readers who might care.

The best url to use when telling people about it is: http://www.donationcoder.com/nany2011

And the best thing you could do is just tell them in your own words why it's a cool thing they might want to tell people about.

Great job, mouser, Perry, and everyone else for all the organizing and hard work that went into this. This was my first NANY and I am happy to have played a small part, and I couldn't have done a better job with the screencast myself, so thanks especially for that, mouser. Thmbsup
