Hello.  I'm pleased to announce the upcoming Guile 100 Programs
The Guile 100 Programs Project is an opportunity to show off your
Guile skills in exchange for a small honorarium.
Each week, on Monday, I'll announce a coding project and ask for
volunteers.  On Wednesday, a volunteer will be chosen at random from
all entrants.  The volunteer will have two weeks to complete the task.
If judged to have completed the task correctly, he or she will receive
a honorarium of 100 USD.
The task will either be a Scheme script, a bug fix on an existing
project, or a C code with Guile bindings.
The Guile 100 Programs project will begin March 11, 2013.  The location
of the website is still TBD. The site is not live yet and will go live
just before the beginning of the project.
Along with the completed code, the entrant must submit two paragraphs
on what was learned and what in the Guile experience needs to be
improved.  If the project results in new code, the submitter must
license it as GPL3+ or LGPL3+ as well as allowing it to appear in
a GFLD-licenced document including invariant sections.
The first two tasks to be announced will likely be
Mar 11, 2013 - Implement a version of the commands `cat' and
`echo' in Scheme.
Mar 18, 2013 - Implement a reduced functionality version of the
command `ls' in Scheme.
Full terms and conditions will be announced when the site goes live.
In the meantime, for more information or ideas you can contact me
on list or at address@hidden
