Why is it Free?

Originally, I was planning to sell Bingo Words Puzzle Designer but then I realized that I’d rather spend my free time working on new code instead of on marketing and all the hassle that comes with running a business.  Besides, putting together something like this only took me a couple weeks of part-time work and it annoys me that some people are charging over $30/copy for something that is this simple to make.

My hope is that it will be useful to someone and that they will pay it forward some day.

About

BingoWords Puzzle Designer is a project I worked on in order to teach myself C#/ASP.NET.  The application is made with C# and Winforms.  The website is build using ASP.NET and is hosted using Mono on a  virtual server at Linode.  I was able to learn every aspect of creating an app with this project – from drawing on the screen to printing and to saving files to generating serial numbers.

Feel free to contact me with questions or suggestions for improvement!
