Thanks to everyone who participated in the Coding Competition.

I hope you had as much fun as the users who tried out your stuff. There have been A LOT of awesome releases, judgement wasn't easy.

If you didn't manage to finish your entry in time - don't worry. As the competition was so awesome, I am currently planning to make an ongoing competition with deadlines each 3 months... so you can always win some nice prizes :)

But that's the future - let's check the current prizes.

As you know, there has been a public voting and a voting by a special jury.

The result of each entry has been converted into a % of the maximum vote and the final results of the jury and the public voting has been combined, with a weight of 40 (jury) to 60 (public).

Congratulations to all the winners! And many thanks to all the participants!

The jury and the community votes seem to agree mostly, which is a good thing. The only category where the jury made a difference in the top-3 is Emulators, but there it was essentially a 3-way tie for the 2nd place anyway. So bad luck for PPSSPP to end up on spot 4, but then again, p'titSeb will get his share of the prizes in the other categories ;)

An ongoing compo with deadlines every 3 months could be a good idea, the only potential issue is that the "deadline effect" is probably less effective if you only need to wait 3 months for the next deadline...

Good results.

@ _wb_

I don't think there should be a deadline effect.

It's meant to make more people coding stuff as they can win prices an of course to give everyone who invests time and helps the Pandora something back.

I don't think anyone cares about deadlines.

Well done to everyone else that made it into the competition too - I'm really glad i wasn't a judge. :D

Thank you to all the voters and jury :) !

About LibreOffice, I still work on it, but the Spellchecking keeps Segfaulting, so more work for me.

And a new code::blocks will come, with Hardware accelerated libs !

Congratulations to all entrants!

You got a project from start to finish in a very short time frame, this is impressive and you should be proud, independent on your scoring in the competition!
