This fall, our good friends over at Omnimaga ran a TI-83 Plus/TI-84 Plus programming competition. There were eleven total entries, including quite a few from our members here, and one from myself. The judging in this contest proceeded in two stages: judging by a panel of judges, then voting by the community. Both phases are now complete, and shmibs has posted the results:
We apologize for how long it took, but the results are finally in and tallied. If you need a quick reminder, this year's competition was exclusively for the monochrome TI 83+/84+ series of calculators. There were had two categories, BASIC and Axe/Assembly/Hybrid BASIC.
Each entry in both categories was then judged in two ways: by a team of staff acting as judges (according to the criteria listed here), and via a forum public vote. The results from both sections were then determined by adding the results of each. Prizes will be awarded to the top three entries in each category (as per described here). Now, without further ado, here are our three winners from each category!
Axe/Assembly/Hybrid BASIC Tipover by Koen "Keoni29" van Vliet: 367.5
Jezzball by Christopher "Kerm Martian" Mitchell: 344.5
Pik0Pik0 by Zero44: 338.5
Pure BASIC Plot+ by Caleb Hansberry: 367.5
Binary Puzzle by Sorunome: 309.25
Toy Wars by William Shipley: 269.75
And that's it! A hearty congratulations to the contest's winners as well as a big thank you to everyone who participated; we hope to see you all again next year! You can check out the Omnimaga topic for the full list of entries and their grades.
