A New Coding Project Every Week at Code52

A few ambitious developers, Andrew Tobin, Brendan Forster, and Paul Jenkins, have created a great community project for 2012, entitled “Code52”.

The description from the site says it all: “We want to build fun stuff in our spare time, give back to projects which need support, and create a community which is inclusive and engaging.”

To do that, they’re building 52 new Open Source projects in 52 weeks, as well as blogging about the experience and their progress. Getting involved in Open Source for new developers can seem overwhelming, but Code52 is a project dedicated to helping new developers get involved. Their first project, a Markdown editor for Windows called MarkPad has been a resounding success:

If you’re interested in participating or even suggesting ideas for the rest of the 50 projects for this year, head to code52.org and get involved!
