Soon after the founding of the BASIC Elite, it is now open to new members. The BASIC Elite is a loose confederation of TI graphing calculator programming groups whose primary language is on of the flavors of TI-BASIC. There are three main components of the Elite: a Programmers' Guide, a newsletter, and a programming consortium. The Guide is a single document, updated each time a new item is added, that contains the largest quantity and variety of programming tips and tricks yet compiled. As new items are suggested, they will be added; so far the document is in its fourth revision. The newsletter will be a semi-monthly publication containing the latest tips, upcoming projects from each of the member organizations, and reviews of outstanding community BASIC programs. The third and final section, the BASIC Elite Programmers' Consortium, will be a standard to ensure the program you are downloading is a quality BASIC program, not a five-minute math class creation. Each program will be individually certified and given an image of approval to include in its documentation.
The BASIC Elite is now accepting applications for membership. Once you or your group is approved, you will be able to review programs, submit programs for certification, and be listed as a member of the Elite. You can access the application below. Please allow up to 24 hours for processing.
