There is also codewalr.us that is fairly active for TI calcs (mainly Axe, xLIBC and BASIC, though). Or there is TI-BASIC Developer and TI-Planet  but the latter is French

Yeah, there isnt enough traffic on this site for me to check in with any kind of frequency. May I suggest going to Cemetech.net or Omnimaga.org for your questions?

It bothers me that all the last stuff that happened on this site was September of last year...

unfortunately, that is used to help prevent bots from attacking. a good example of this would be Spud's forum.
right now, this verification is all we have.

I find the verification slightly annoying. Every time I post.

Luxen: yes, that's exactly the goal, it's the glue between each part of the site  ;D

Contra: good idea with the top navigation bar! it certainly helps you realize there is more to the site.

also, this is the wrong place to make a topic about "cemetech minecraft".

Anyway, I don't want to simplify too much the homepage, because we need to be seo compliant and explain to boot what this website is talking about.

ok thank you Luxen. I think we could do something like this with html+css, why use flash? Anyway, what we could do is maybe to publish recent post and recent q&a on homepage...

@Contra: I am well. I'm curious what has led to the surge of new members, and I press everyone to introduce themselves in the introductory topic.

TI-Concours 2013 is open !
« on: February 05, 2013, 03:49:25 PM »
Ladies and gentlemen, you were waiting for this moment, inscriptions to the TI-Concours are open !  ;D

I will tell about what's new in this 3rd edition, this year, the TI-Concours evolves !

Two new categories

After TI-Basic z80 (2011), then Axe and TI-Basic 68k (2012), it is the time for z80 Asm and Nspire Lua. We will have 5 categories this year.
Hope there will be many participants !
I want to precise that "asm z80" includes 83+ asm, but even Asm83 and other, 82, 86 if you want :D

Shifting the different categories in time

To allow participants to participate in as many categories as they want, the imposed subjects will take place at different periods for each category !
Here is the calendar (French, sorry ._. )


As you see, there will be only one imposed subject in Asm and Lua categories instead of two, which will last two weeks instead of one, and which will be noted on 200 instead of 100.

Deletion of the age limit

Deletion of the personnal projects, creation of a "final round"

This is the biggest news, the free projects deletion.
Until the last year, the '3rd round' consisted in present a personal project totally free in four weeks, and submit it to the visitors' votes.
This is the past ;)
Now, at the end of the required subjects, the best coders will be qualified for the final. This involves removal of participants in lower scores, particularly in categories that are more successful (TI-Basic z80 for example).

Finalists will be subjected to two tests:

-> An oral of 20 minutes, without preparation, with one of the judges of the relevant class, via Skype or something like that (you should have a webcam+micro but even if you don't have one you can still subscribe, we will find a solution anyway so don't worry ;) ):
The candidate will choose a subject by lot, every subject related to a concept of the programming language corresponding to its category.
During the first 10 minutes, the examiner will ask a series of questions requiring knowledge or reflection
Then will take place a discussion about the programming language in general, or about general knowledge of calculators, the participant's motivations, or the programs he made while the required subjects (justify some part of code, etc...)
This oral would take place in English or French, between the 10 and 17 May. (2013)

-> A practical test of 3h (add 20 minutes to upload the programs) the 18 or 19 May (the exact times will be specified later and will take account of time zones):
A topic composed of several exercices themselves composed of several questions will be send to the finalists.
Can you be both fast and performant at the same time ?  8)

Those two tests will be noted on 400 points, therefore, the final score will be on 1000 points.

Why aving doing those changes ?
The first reason was to not compete with other contests, most of which are based on a personal project with a free theme.
Moreover, while the two last years a lot of conpetitors have abandoned because they had no idea of ??project, and it is unfortunate.
Finally, the presence of a vote by visitors, and the difficulty to judge a program objectively reinforced my idea, especially as critor and nikitouzz immediately approved me.  :P


The awards

You are interested, huh ? :P
As in 2011, we decided to not publish details of lots before to get an idea of the number of participants.
That said, in order to get you some desire to participate (if you don't still have :D ), I specify that there is several calculators to win, and many goodies, especially thanks to TI-PlanetJarrety. ;D

I sincerely hope that this new edition will be another great success !
One of a kind, the TI-contest, I hope, will manage in the future to become a reference in terms of programming contests on TI calculators.  :)

Thank you for posting here.

I already entered the contest in the assembly category.

Year after year, your contest is becoming probably the biggest contest ever, that's really cool.
