CANCELED. We'll be sure to try this again next time!
TI-BASIC Developer is proud to present CalcCoders 2015, an event in where programmers from across the world compete against each other in a series of challenges. These may range from finding the simplest radical form to creating RPG and Arcade games, and everything else in-between. The winners of these challenges would then progress onto the Finals, where they all will come together and compete one last time against each other for the prize, a $20 Steam Gift Card!
All of the submissions will then be published to benefit the calculator community as a whole, sharing tips, tricks, algorithms, and more bringing about better, faster programs in the future. If you do not wish to have your submission published, you may message us to opt out, and we will respect your wishes.
For our judges, we have Michael2_3B and kaleb5005131, long-lasting and esteemed members of the TI-BASIC Developer community, as well as Silver Phantom, a Site Moderator and 3-year veteran of our forums. I am Toothless the Dragon, the Event Coordinator of CalcCoders, as well as a Site Moderator, and more than 1-year veteran of the community.
The rules of the contest are the following:
1. Your submission must be programmed in full TI-BASIC, unless stated otherwise for that particular challenge.
2. The majority of your submission must be your creation, and not plagiarized from others. Using snippets of code that the creator allows, the wiki, or forum posts is allowed.
3. All entries must be received by the deadline set by 11:59 PM PST. Any further submissions or edits will be dismissed.
4. A program may be edited and resubmitted multiple times before the deadline. The judges will review your latest submission.
5. Your submission must not have been created/worked on BEFORE the declaration of the challenge, as it would be unfair to the other users to submit a project with potentially much more spent time on it.
6. A challenge may include specific rules. These rules MUST be followed along with the general rules above.
The event starts on June 8th, 2015, so check back here when it's up! The challenges will be posted in this thread, as well as its sister thread over at Omnimaga here. To submit your program, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Finally, on behalf of the entire CalcCoders committee, thanks for reading, and happy coding! We hope to see you all here!
