My idea is...

  1. ifttt clone/alternative with user-provided channels

    ifttt (ifttt.com) is pretty awesome, but there are only ~42 channels and I really wanted to be able to hook Pivotal Tracker up to Trello so that new PT stories get automatically added to a Trello card but PT and Trello aren't available channels in ifttt.

    So what I would like is a ifttt clone, with a "custom API" channel that lets you sketch out how the API works, then you could hook arbitrary APIs together. Figuring out how to design the sketch for an end-user would be tricky, I guess it would involve picking an authentication scheme then describing…

    • Media-portal

      a web portal where everyone can to exchange data packets with a completely unknown person. For example, one song is worth 3 points, an e-book is worth 1 point, a picture is worth 2 points. registering on the site the user receives 10 or 15 points. then he can pack songs, books or pictures in the archives and share with others that provide the same value in points. Also, points will have a cash equivalent, and the site will be able to earn this. sorry if my English is full of mistakes. i`m from Ukraine, so my English is bad.

      • Simple Metro-styled To-Do list app

        A simple Metro-styled plain-text To-Do list, preferably using a plain text file format similar to TaskPaper on the Mac (http://www.hogbaysoftware.com/products/taskpaper) so it'll be compatible with the mobile apps as well as TaskPaper on the Mac.

        • Write a desktop update/install system that doesn't suck

          There are so many options out there and they all have their flaws. Can we take an OSS library like wyUpdate and make it awesome in a week? Can we make it work with the install experience of ClickOnce? Are we mad?

          • Sky Projectection that lets people "report" UFO sightings

            Probably a nodejs/mongodb backend with webgl frontend that lets people report UFO sightings in 3d over a sky projection (day or night) and give a trajectory for the object. (No I've never seen a UFO and have no opinion on whether they are real or not, I just think it would be a fun project.) Others can view potential UFO sightings or just view objects in the sky at given times. Would be nice to track satellites and whatnot.

            • Kinect and HTML5 App (Framework)

              Kinect and HTML5 App - Not a game but something different like Kinect actions for Websites, swipes etc for navigation, plugin the metro.css as well for the pivot. Bring Natural UI to the MVC world!

              Maybe the possibility of voice recognition security (Extendthe MVC AccountController to inlcude this?!). Inspiration from:

              • Create an Elite clone for Win8

                The "source" and other info for Elite (classic game) is available at http://www.iancgbell.clara.net/elite/bbc/index.htm#src

                It might be fun to write a version for Win8 (or WP7) that takes advantage of movement sensors for movement. Might be a bit much for a week's effort, but hey, it's an idea! Even if the shell and basic nav gets built that would be cool.

                              The goal is to extend Twitter Bootstrap (a great responsive design skeleton) 's functionality.

                              For example, like adding a responsive DatePicker, ... and making it more customizable, on which points we would extend Twitter Bootstrap should be dicussed first.

                              • Entity Framework POCO Attribute Interpreter/Stripper

                                Annotating POCO classes with attributes for the sake of code-first database generation is a really efficient way to build up data models but whether those attributes (Key, Foreign Key, Column, Required, StringLength, etc...) actually belong on the POCO object is a topic of debate. My idea is to build a tool for rendering EF model configurations using the EF Fluent API based on existence of known Entity Framework attributes.

                                  • A micro-CMS for ASP .NET

                                    The micro-CMS would be a Nuget package you could add to any ASP.NET web app to give it basic CMS functionality for any routes not covered by the application itself. The content could just be stored in .html files on disk, or other providers could be created for different persistence.

                                    • RateBeer style site

                                      RateBeer and the other sites either do not have API's, or the authors are no longer issuing app tokens.

                                      To make this work we need:
                                      - Service which contains beers, styles, locations
                                      - Mobile apps
                                      - Website

                                      Nice to haves
                                      - Foursquare integration, I checkin to a location, these are the beers they have available, these are the ones you have tried and liked, and these are the ones you havent tried.

                                          A client app that uses NAudio, possibly the SoundCloud API, and other fun stuff to record / create / edit audio, maybe music stuffs.
