perhaps an app for:

- optimize and simplify Dbus-switchboard

- an app for skydrive.live (windows cloudstorage) or for "ubuntu one" to get access to our personal cloud dashboard. this last one will be very kool.

sorry for my bad and poor english guys.

Please also consider spreading the word...
Last time there was some moaning afterwards, because not everyone knew about the competition.
Also it is good for you, because more coverage means more developers means more apps means probably higher quality apps because of the competitors..

Ah, great!

Wonderful timing...
I just realized last weekend that my Idea, I had several weeks ago for a status bar applet, is not feasible using Qt. And I have learned exactly this (C++ and Qt) since the last competition.

Very frustrating.
Perhaps this Competition is the thing I need to motivate myself again. I will look into it again and try it using Python and GTK. But I'm at the moment not very happy about the fact that I have to do it this way.

I hope I will have a other brilliant Idea until the first of April... But great that our famous first coding competition gets a successor.

I have only one small complain about the naming. Am I correct that this is the only and single Maemo/MeeGo Coding Competition this year? If yes this is sad and if not, you have failed and Naming it Maemo Coding Competition #2 would be a better idea. (okay, just kidding - perhaps in 4 months you will swear that this was the first and last competition this year)

Well, considering that newbie-bashing is a growing worldwide trend, I'm frightened to ask, but still I'll press forward with this one:

I, err, want to learn how to code. Is there a good place to start learning? What languages should I pick and how should I start? Is it likely that I'll learn enough to participate in the competition?

Don't be frightened-- outright newbie-bashing isn't welcome here.

I would recommend learning C++ or Java and a scripting language or three. Javascript, Python, and PHP are a few big ones. There are plenty of free development environments like Qt and Eclipse.

If you have zero coding experience, you have your work cut out for you. I won't try to discourage you from trying this contest but you would have some experienced competition. If you pick things up quickly, who knows! The single best talent for coding in general is a strong sense of logic. Got it? Go for it!

We'll have a Beginners category this year, too. Only first time maemo/MeeGo devs are allowed to submit their app there, so go ahead!
Inside this category the competition shouldn't be too hard for you.

Thanks for participating!

Please participate in the discussion. If you don't, you won't have the right to say afterwards that something should have been done in a different way...

I think "Desktop" is too general.
What about a category for "network" applications (twitter/chat ...)
And what about game emulators. (like PSX4M, I didn't like that it was in Games category last competition).
