You have about 1 month time ... The comp end time is : 20th August 2009.
Just don't forget to add the neo spash screen which will be available at 10th August !!! .

The 4 NEO Top Review winners (each division will have one TOP winner) can choose anyone item from the whole prize list ,or choose US$100 cash.

So ,DrNeo ,  this year the top 4 reviewers can choose between cash and a prize?
Whatever is the case i will probably do some reviews since i have so much free time in the summer  ~sm-33.gif~ ~sm-33.gif~ ::sm-17.gif:: ::sm-17.gif:: ::sm-12.gif::...

I'm very surprised that there havn't been any entries yet. I don't think its that people arn't interested, perhaps that we're all just still working. Still, I thought it might be helpful to post to say that I should be entering; though, probebly not until the end of the competition. My project still needs quite some work before it'll be in any fit state to be submitted.

can you tell me what I need to present my proyect?

thanks

Looking at the screenshots, I'd guess that your program is an app, although I can't read the text. Perhaps if you gave us a brief explaination of what it does then I could make a more informed decision, but in the meantime I'd post it under applications.

- The homebrew in principle intended to be a Morse translator also add some images and examples to learn a bit forgotten that communication system.

As I understand it, it also includes a tutorial.

Hey, I have some questions if you don't mind.

The Deadline is August 20th. In what timezone? I'm just wondering if it's August 20th 12:00 AM (GMT + 8:00) or just August 20th 12:00 AM (GMT). Or if we can submit as long as it's still August 20th somewhere in the world.

We retain full rights to the programs we enter right? I'm sure the answer is yes, but I'm pretty cautious about things like that.

The final question is about the source code. I understand that we don't have to make it public, but is it required that we PM it to you? I had trouble understanding the way that part of the description was worded.

Sorry if these questions are dumb, or if it's kind of late to be asking them. This would be my first coding competition, and I only just heard about it.

I think i can answer these questions , since they've been asked many times:

1) Your country's timezone , when you see the clock reaching 23:59 , that is!
Most devs usually release some beta versions a day or two before the deadline...And they try to take advantage
of the last few hours just to release a more polished version!.
 
2) Yes
3) Source isn't required
4) Doesn't matter , hope everything will turn good for you! ~sm-36.gif~ ~sm-36.gif~

Post by: Sektor on August 16, 2009, 08:06:25 PM
Dr. Neo always says YOUR timezone but he hasn't really been strict in the past, entries are usually accepted as long as it's still August 20th somewhere in the world.

You don't have to release source code.  I doubt anyone will give you more votes for releasing source code but it can't hurt.

You keep all rights but sometimes neoflash will bundle your entry on a CD with one of their devices.

edit: changed 19th to 20th.
Title: Re: The NEO Summner Coding Compo is running now
Post by: Freshmilk on August 16, 2009, 11:32:17 PM
I thought by entering we surrendered all rights to the submitted program to Neoflash; so that they may sell it or use it commercially alongside one of their products. I might be wrong, though.
Title: Re: The NEO Summner Coding Compo is running now
Post by: Sektor on August 16, 2009, 11:57:02 PM
Well if you made it from scratch then you still own and can release it or sell or do what you want with it but yes you do give Neoflash permission to include your entry with their products.

Actually, you can enter as long as it's the 20th somewhere in the world (i mean, until 11h59PM on the 20th, not the 19th). :P

I'm still planning to enter a PSP game. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2VuDGJpVROE

Thanks for everyone's answers and I swear I'm not trying to be obtuse, but I'm still not 100% sure on the date, even with the edit made to Sektor's post. Can I be absolutely sure I have another day and that I can work on the 20th, and submit it before the 21st? Or must I submit before the 20th meaning I have less than 24 hours from now to work on it? Because it drastically affects what I'll be able to get done. I suppose I'll end up submitting something before the 20th just to be safe, but it'll be missing a big thing I have planned. (Though I'm not sure I'll get the big thing done anyway.)
