DonationCoder is running another whopper of a coding contest, with the help of Chris Hanscom (who runs veign.com).
The prize is a copy of Microsoft Visual Studio Team Suite with MSDN Premium subscription (almost every application from Microsoft!), worth over $10,000!
So what do you have to do to enter?
- Code a new, never-released application, using one of the free versions of Microsoft Visual Studio Express.
- Provide the source code for your application (but you do not need to release this publicly if you don’t want to).
- The winning program must be freeware or donationware.
- Code any kind of program you want.
- Post a reply to this forum thread and email mouser stating your intention to enter, well in advance of the deadline.
When is that deadline?
July 1st, 2008
Oh, my! That’s not too far away, so go read about the full contest rules and information and get coding.
For those of you that have trouble configuring an irc client, or need to access the chat from a mobile phone or other device that doesn't have a chat client, or those of you that can't install an MX client at work...
We now have a nifty little webchat that will put you directly into our IRC channel.
No ActiveX needed!
No Java needed!
No problems getting through firewalls & routers!
So come say hello to us in our new webchat.
This webchat is brought to you by mibbit. If you have an IRC channel and would like a webchat for your site, give mibbit a try.
If you have no clue what LOLCode is, it's the hilarious esoteric programming language of all the cool lolcats.
Seems some coders with a sense of humor have just too much time on their hands, and what started out as a joke has been taken pretty far.
