This is a pretty cool idea. Is there anything, prizes, support, etc the VS team could provide for this? Are boxes signed by the extensibility team interesting? Let me know.

Just happens I'm writing a killer (IMHO) add-in for VS.NET! Hope I will be able to deliver first beta next month. Btw, should it be open source and why do you need the sources?

Oleg: cool.
Yes, it should be open source. I want the sources because the whole point of this is to share and learn information and code that can bebefit others, while making the world a cooler place at the same time :)

Roy, by "the end of next month" you mean the closing date is 5th June 2004?

Is there any chance you could extend the rules to allow C++ add-ins (of the non-managed flavour). Some of us Luddites 'enjoy' doing all that tricky COM stuff by hand!

I will submit a really cool add-in if you do.... :-)

Any way you'd accept The Object Model Generator's Visual Studio addin? :D

Senkwe: I mean submission closes at the end of the 5th month (31.5.04)
Jonathan: I have no idea if you're kidding or not. Still, only managed code allowed. Sorry.
Omer: Yeah. That could use an add-in. Remember - new code, and that is one.

Nah, I wasn't kidding! Its just I have a new add-in I have started in C++ and I was wondering if I could bend the rules to enter it for your competition. Oh well.

If I write a "wrapper" to host Regulator in a VS.NET window, would that count ? :)

Can a person submit more than 1 add-in or macro?

Later,

Eric

Eric: Wrappers don't count :)
Also, YOu can submit any number of add-ins or macros. The more the marrier.

Can an Add-In use a 3rd party control if it is freely available to anyone (i.e. open source, freeware, gpl, etc.)?

Thanks,

Eric

Why do the contest for VS and why not have the contest for a non profit organization. Do we really need to help Microsoft conquer the world of programming.

Can I nomminate an add.in?

Suppose I can - I nomminate for the first prize - no less the eXtesible C#2.0.

If you don't know what is it - google resolecorp.

A truly amazing tool which opens so much possibilities.

Why is the final date set again to May 31?

This is a major blow to the people who thought it would be June 30... and if you ask me: it sucks. Roy, please, set it again to June 30. Too many people counted on that date already.
