--> DonationCoder.com NANY 2013 Roundup Summary
« on: January 02, 2013, 10:59:39 AM »
For the past 7 years at DonationCoder.com we have held an annual "New Apps for the New Year (N.A.N.Y.)" event where we ask the coders who hang out on the site to create some new piece of free software and share it with the world. What follows is a roundup of the entries from this year.

The NANY event is not a competition -- anyone can participate and everyone who does gets a unique mug commemorating the event.

Most of the programs this year were done for fun by the coders -- some are polished and ready for public use, while others are a little rough around the edges and were mainly done as a proof of concept.  All programs are freely available for download.

A request:

If you aren't one of the coders who participated in the NANY event this year, and can afford a few bucks to donate to the site -- we can always use some help paying for the mugs that we send out to all of the NANY participants.  Other than the hosting costs it's our largest expense each year.

Even better would be to donate and then use our DonationCredits system to donate to the individual authors who participated in the NANY event (by clicking the gold coin under their name when you visit their thread), to show your appreciation.  Or you can just send your DonationCredits to the site fund account and we will use that for mugs and then distribute the rest to nany participants.

Thank you everyone who helped with NANY this year (special thanks to Hally for the great 2013 mug image this year)!

I'm happy with Cody wallpapers, so that's why I make it even easier and just donate my mug funds to the general fund!

Mouser I can put this back in the Basement if you think it has the wrong tone. It was just supposed to be a satirical joke.

Heh Kyrathaba I had fun with your video show last year. It would be fun if you did a Librivox story recording! What accent do you have? :  )

The Donation Coder website holds a programming event they call Nany, which stands for New Apps for the New Year, in which coders pledge to create and release a free piece of software by year’s end. The variety of programs is usually enormous, from small portable programs that are useful for a very specific task over plugins for existing programs to game editors.

The programs of this year have just been announced my Mouser. You can visit the site to go through the programs one by one to find the ones of interest to you.

Tao, I guess you could say it is a southern accent. It would certainly sound that way to many of our viewers.
