bluehash 1,581 Posted May 26, 2011 Share Posted May 26, 2011 Posting here as some members miss out on reading the Announcements/Suggestion Posts. We were thinking about introducing a program where members were given an incentive to write and share code. Lets say member NatureTM is interested in using an accelerometer for his project, but would like some ready to use code. But he doesn't. On top of that, he'll have to invest in an accelerometer breakout. This is where 43oh and the community come in. Let's call this program "The Code Pot" or "The Community Pot", where you suggest what you need, and we'll try to get the hardware to you. We have been having advertising for a couple of months and we sure can spare some amount to this. There will also be a donate button, if anyone wishes to contribute to the post. So NatureTM selected a breakout for an accelerometer from Sparkfun. Once there is enough money in the Pot, we'll ship the the hardware to him, directly from the vendor. NatureTM will now be able to write code and share it. He's free to keep the hardware or share it. Be aware that all transactions and member assignments and will be public. Things to take care of. - Following proper code structure. - Abuse. Suggesting a hardware, but do not write software for it. - Shipping costs. Reasonable( - Still thinking... So how do you guys like it? Would you welcome this? We think it is a great learning and sharing opportunity.Looking forward to your views. gatesphere and NatureTM 2 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
