Newsletter for April 13, 2006
Codename '3 Big Things'

"If you read nothing else on our site, read the newsletter!"

A short newsletter this time, but only because the items are so big!

1. DonationCredits Goes Live!
  • We have finally unveiled our long-rumoured microdonation system.  Now it's easy for users to make small donations to one another and to authors on the site. Half of every donation you make now is returned to you in the form of credits for you to give out on the site as you see fit.
  • Read more about the DonationCredits system.

2. Massive C++ Builder Donationware Programming Contest
  • In cooperation with Borland we have announced a 3 month programming contest with over $25,000 in prizes.  Winners will also receive a spotlight on our site.
  • Read more about the C++ Builder Contest.

3. One-year Retrospective Article on DonationCoder.com Posted
  • A long article about the motivations, goals, and lessons learned after a year-long experiment with Donationware on our site.

As always, if you find any of these items (especially #3, the article) linkworthy, by all means please do submit it to slashdot, digg, stumbleupon, etc.

It would be nice if it had a larger audience.

See http://www.donationc...dex.php?topic=3201.0 for a list of links of places that might be appropriate.
