Hey, everyone. While I may not be new to programming entirely, I still pretty much a newbie. My methods are still very simple, and I am here to improve on them. I am quite embarrassed at my level of programming skills, since I'm a senior in high school… But I always blame the school for not having any good computer courses (nothing but keyboarding…), so I'm usually self-taught. It's a pleasure to be here, and I hope to learn a lot! Oh, and my calculator is a TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition.
I, shortly after posting this, finished my first program. It took me about 4 hours to write, as I didn't have a computer at hand, but if I don't act quickly on my thoughts, I lose them forever. So I wrote it directly on the calculator. Very tedious. It turned out well, though. It's a simple program that converts different measures of data storage to other measures, ie. Gigabytes to Terabytes. Granted, if you check a conversion more than two steps higher or lower than the one you're converting from, you get some wonky exponential answers… But that just goes to show the user how far we've come in the field of data management… Yet we're discussing a program on a calculator with about 3.5 MB total internal storage. That's sorta funny…
the irony of it! lol. you're welcome to add the program to the archives if you want.
Oh, Btw. Welcome to the community! If you ever need any help, the forum is here and so the wiki.
so your starting with the CSE in programming TI-basic. you might be a bit stiffled in help you can get from here when it comes to graphics and benchmarking since we havent really prepared a new page for it yet, but the coding for it is like any other 83/84+ calculator.
Well, in any case, good luck and have fun!
The Silver Phantom welcomes you
