If you’re not familiar with it, Donationcoder is one of the web’s best sources for high quality, free and donationware software. But’s its more than that: Donationcoder is a community of coders and software enthusiasts, a site that been successful in sustaining an ongoing, intelligent conversation about software for years (including some of the most in-depth and high-quality software reviews on the internet).
Since their inception four years ago, Donationcoder have been a part of a bold experiment in alternative funding based entirely on member donations. Not only have they proved the skeptics wrong by surviving, they have succeeded in thriving and in delivering a constant stream of applications and attaining s deserved reputation for sophisticated, intelligent discourse. Check out their best-of blog here.
One thing I also want to mention are their periodic “coding competitions” that have produced some of the most unique and original ideas for apps that you’ll ever see. And speaking of unique and original, check out Skrommel’s page of one-hour apps.
