Here we go, App A Month starts in less than a month. Lets work together and make it a success!
This year marks a new beginning for myself and Vague Entertainment. This year I want to take Vague Entertainment from a part time hobby to a full time job. However, I don’t want to create just another application mill, and I know I can not succeed alone, so I am reaching out, looking for people willing to help and contribute to make Vague Entertainment something amazing. “How can I help?” You may ask; well, keep reading.
I plan on revamping the App-A-Week challenge, but for the sake of my sanity and better output it will be known as App-A-Month. Each week I will post a summary of the progress on the project up to a final reveal at the end of the month. AND this will be the first way you can help! I want to create software that my followers and backers suggest! From games to utilities, no idea is too small or large. So get thinking!
If ideas aren’t your thing, you can help by spreading the word about VE, using the software we produce, and/or becoming bug testers for new and upcoming releases.
Of course monetary help is always welcome. All software and content VE uses or produces will be Open Source and Creative Commons. So I have setup a Liberapay and Patreon account to fund these projects. No one is required to pay, but if we want to be truly different we need to find a better way to fund FOSS software.
For Liberapay :
After leaving the City of Bridgeport, I began the long and expensive journey to better myself through any means necessary. As a part of this endeavor I decided to take my predilection toward programming to the next level. Coming from an IT background I have used various scripting languages to make my life easier. From De-duplication scripts to a Star-Map inspired firewall monitoring system I was always working on a way to make my job easier.
So between jobs (which is where I currently am) I began the “App A Week Challenge” an attempt to hone my programming skills by giving myself 7 days to take an idea and make it into a usable product. As a part of the project I took to You Tube and recorded my programming sessions (sped up and put to music).
I’m currently rebuilding the site here on vagueentertainment.com but will post images of finished products here in my blog for the sake of content.
As a part of Vague Entertainment’s commitment to its “employees” We are giving everyone a place to blog about projects and themselves to help them build an online portfolio. I for one am not very good at talking about myself, but if I am to ask others to do it I must as well.
