FYI NANY 2010 - Annual Event at


Jul 16, 2007
Programming Experience
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 - 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 entries this year! :D
