Newsletter for July 2, 2006 - Codename ''Summer Software"

Newsletter for July 2nd, 2006
Codename 'Summer Software'


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


1. The C++ Builder Programming Contest is Almost Over (July 15th)!
Calling all programmers: Our C++ Builder Donationware Programming Contest, co-sponsored by Borland is coming to an end in the next two weeks.  With over $25,000 worth of prizes, the winners are going to be rolling in goodies and be the envy of their friends.  Plus you'll have your winning program featured on our site and in a magazine article as well.

2. New DonationCoder.com Software Releases
We listen to your requests and we've released quite a few updates in the last two weeks.

3. July's Discounts and Giveaways
Each month we contact companies you have told us you want discounts from, and ask them if they are willing to provide a month long discount to our DonationCoder.com members, and donate a few copies for us to give away in a monthly drawing.  Let's see what we've got lined up for July:

4. Games and Diversions
Ok you know the drill, work hard and play light - we love the little Flash Games and diversions, and they're a constant subject of discovery discussion on our forum:

5. Site Features and News
We are always adding new features to our website in response to suggestions by you, our members.  What did we discuss in the last two weeks?

6. Developer's Corner
More and more people are discovering our programming school section, and having fun rediscovering the joy of programming.  And the developer-related discussions on our forum are getting interesting.

7. Debates and Hot Discussions
We love debating software issues on the forum.  Why aren't you joining in and expressing your views?  Everyone's opinion is welcome.

8. Web Discoveries and Articles
What's worth reading on the web? With so much information out there it can be hard to know.  Here are some recent discoveries we're talking about on the forum.

9. Security News
We are always keeping an eye out for security alerts, and we've seen a few recently.

10. Website of the Month
Each month we honor a website we love.  It shouldn't be a surprise to find software addicts gravitate to this month's site of the month, BetaNews.  It's one of the few sites that treats Beta releases as special treasures.


Special thanks to jgpaiva for preparing this month's newsletter, and to ampa for handling all the discounts and giveaway stuff!

ok another newsletter is up!
big thanks as always to JGPaiva, who has collected the posts and organized them!

and a huge special thanks this month to Ampa, who did all the work of getting discounts and donated copies and updating the discount and drawing page (some of the program discount codes aren't posted yet - they will go online in the upcoming week).
