Lifehacker looking for DonationCoder
« on: November 24, 2006, 05:32:15 AM »
Ok, not the best topic title in the planet, but I'm not inspired right now. Lifehacker wants to know if "Is there a web site somewhere out there where users submit ideas for things to be programmed and good Samaritans code the ones they like in their free time?" defining the very spirit of DonationCoder (at least regarding Coding Snacks). Wise readers point at DonationCoder in the second comment ;D

Lifehacker must be pretty blind imho..
The clock is running. Make the most of today. Time waits for no man. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why it is called the present.

If this is the same thing I saw, somebody already mentioned DonationCoder in the comments.

[update]
Yes, it is.

I was out of town (cold turkey for computers for 16 days!) when that article first appeared. The sites mentioned in the replies were generally commercially-oriented, nothing like like DC. There were a couple of suggestions to learn Ruby or Python; not exactly the spirit of the article! Agree with Mouser, it was nice to see a good mention of DC. Just an aside: the LH site is very nicely done. Gina and the group have a sweet sense of design.
