Developer Of The Month Contest
Developers are the smartest people on the planet. Everyday we solve problems that would cause lesser men (and women) to go insane as they try to comprehend our daily tasks.
Imagine trying to teach the average man in a bar how to spawn multiple threads or how to override a virtual class and you will see the looks of despair on his face.
While we are smart, we don’t write everything from scratch all the time. Often we keep sample code that illustrates points or how to achieve tasks. Sometimes we package these up into sample projects, and sometimes we just store away the snippet of code into a text file ready for use sometime in the future.
Chances are you have loads of fantastic samples that show how to use Skypes functionality hiding away in a folder on your hard disk right now, so why not share that code with your fellow Skype developers.
To make it worth your while, I am going to run “developer of the month” competition. Every sample project, or snippet of sample code that is sent in will be entered into the competition and the lucky winner will win a fantastic prize.
I pick the prize, and I work on the premise that whatever you win I should also have. So you can bet that it is going to be worth your while.
The more code you submit, the better the chance of winning you have, and the more other developers can learn from you expertise

It would also help if you could use the following format with your entries so I can identify them.

I’ll be putting up a webpage shortly so others can get their hands on the samples.
Until then – get uploading and good luck.
