Hello everyone!


I have a lot in this post but please read through it. I really want feedback from everyone. I want to know if people support what I'm working toward.


I just started a campaign on Indiegogo for my organization. I've been working on Indie Softworks for about 9 months now and I've put a lot of work into it. My goal is to complete the creation Indie Softworks sometime in the next couple months. The goal of the organization is to provide free, reliable software to everyone who needs it. I've decided to go beyond this and provide educational articles and tools as well. Basically I will create articles and tutorials to share some of my experiences in application development with others. After I rebuild my site, members will have the opportunity to do the same. I hope this will create a solid community where people can learn and create together. This organization is not a for-profit venture.


Please take a look my campaign: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/indie-softworks/x/5934014



A few of the applications I've created so far are below.


1) CBR and CBZ to PDF

CBR and CBZ to PDF actually has a lot of support. I initially created this software for myself so I could read manga on my kindle. I decided to publish it in the hopes it could be helpful to others. As it turns out, it was. It has over 17,000 downloads on CNET and Softpedia combined and even got editor's reviews on both sites.


2) EMPU - Enhanced Multilingual Programming Utility

This application I designed for personal use as well. I was using Notepad++ and Geany for a lot of my work, but they both have drawbacks. Basically EMPU is a programmer's text editor supporting syntax highlighting for 70 languages, project management, and everything you'd expect from this sort of application (ex. line operations, comment hot keys, compilation, etc). It has a major update coming in the next couple weeks.


3) Windows Start Menu

This one is still in the works but will basically be a start menu for Windows 8 and 8.1. Honestly I don't like how the new "start" menu completely breaks you out of what you're doing and brings you to a new screen entirely. It interrupts my workflow. The one I'm creating will be similar to the Windows 7 start menu but designed to match Windows 8/8.1. It also has multiple monitor support. It should be out later this month.


I've also developed custom installers for all of these applications. 



If you're interested, here's one of the articles I've written. I hope to create many, many more - all with both video and written versions.


Variadic Functions



Thank you for reading my post. I look forward to your feedback!
