Since 2007 we have held an annual event that we call NANY (New Apps for the New Year), where we ask the coders who hang out on DonationCoder to create some new piece of free software and share it with the world on January 1st of the new year (browse previous year entries here
NANY is really the funnest thing we do on this site, and it's one of the few times we can all play together. There are no winners or losers, it's simply a celebration of programming and creating new software and sharing it with the world. You can target any operating system (desktop or mobile) or even make a web-based tool. It can be a game, utility, large application, whatever. Best of all, everyone who participates gets a free commemorative coffee mug.
Congratulations to everyone who has participated in NANY this year. I hope everyone had fun! On behalf of everyone on the site, I thank you for helping us kick off the new year. Please show some appreciation to those who participated by sending the participantsa small donation.You can see the list of entries here: http://www.donationcoder.com/nany2015
