DonationCoder have just opened the doors on this year's NANY Event.

N.A.N.Y. stands for "New Apps for the New Year", and is an event where coders of all levels release a brand new FREEWARE/DONATIONWARE application to celebrate the coming of the new year. The NANY event is a celebration of software and a way to demonstrate your skills learned in the last year in a fun environment.

There are no winners, no big prizes. Just the fun of releasing something new. You of course keep all rights to your software -- All we offer is a fun unique new coffee mug (or tshirt) with a pretty cool design celebrating the event, and some publicity for your software. This is really just all about celebrating the fun of programming something new.

The NANY Challenge
  • Pledge that you are participating well before the New Year (you shouldn't just wait until Dec 31 to reveal whether you decided to participate or not); DECEMBER 11 is our goal to have the pledges).
  • Release the application on or before 31st December 2009.
  • Any type of application can be included: Windows, Linux, Mac, Web, iPhone, Android, Script, Plugin, etc., but it needs to be a new program that hasn't been released publicly before November 2009 (updates to existing programs don't qualify unless they are complete rewrites).
  • You don't have to be affiliated with DonationCoder.com - you still get to announce it as part of the N.A.N.Y. Challenge: you keep all the rights to your software, this is just an event to encourage coders to release new free tools.

There's even a host of Volunteers to give a hand with the non-coding part of your entry, and a growing Ideas thread if you're looking for some ideas!

Looking forward to some great vb.net entries this year! :D
