New Code Sharing Section & Reward Program for Contributors!
UPDATE (11/02/2010): The code section is now live.
UPDATE 2 (01/31/2011): The reward program has changed. A flat fee of $20 per code snippet submitted will now be paid.
I am very happy to finally announce the imminent launch of the new code sharing section. My vision for this new section is a rich library of high quality code snippets for the DSP community, from processor specific functions to Matlab or Scilab routines, from the simplest filter implementation to the most complex DSP algorithm.
Before I officially launch this new section though, I need to find some DSP experts who would be interested in contributing to the database and help me populate it with an initial set of snippets.
If you think you have something to contribute that would benefit the DSP community, please click here to apply to become a contributor.
Now, to attract as many talented contributors as possible and to make the launch a little more interesting, I will draw down from my line of credit, skip a meal or two, and sell my kids’ favorite toys (ok, maybe not the toys) to create a reward program based on unique pageviews.
Basically, any code snippet submitted by a contributor will generate rewards for the contributor when the number of unique pageviews reaches the following milestones:
- $50 when the piece of code reaches 5,000 unique pageviews
- an additional $200 when the piece of code reaches 25,000 unique pageviews
In other words, any code snippet submitted has the potential to generate up to $250 in rewards to the contributor. The pace at which the milestones will be reached will depend on many variables, like for instance how popular the code sharing section will be and the individual popularity of the code snippets.
A counter will be included with every code snippet submitted, allowing the contributing member to track down how many unique visitors have viewed the piece of code (unique pageviews) and how close the code snippet is from reaching the milestones (and the rewards).
I am in unknown territory here - it is the first time that I am offering such a reward program to stimulate the participation of members. If this approach is successful, I plan on replicating it with the launch of future sections.
