Ending our amazing saga of back-to-back PotM/PotY articles, the results are in for the 2023 Projects of the Year! This poll was absolutely no contest... Cemetechians seemed to unanimously vote for the same best project!
In 3rd Place, we have Topicle, created by kg583! Based on the popular word puzzle game Wordle, Topicle features four words which you must successfully guess, all relating to a central clue, or, as the name suggests, topic. Solving a puzzle is a fun workout for your brain, and when you’re done, you can even share your score with others to brag about your word skills (as many Cemetechians have done in the project thread)!
In 2nd Place, we have Ti-83+SE/84+(SE) Video + Audio Player, created by Crazy_Fox2! Unlike previous video or audio players for these calculators, this program is able to play video and audio simultaneously. According to the topic, the Silver Edition calculators can hold around 1 minute of video, while the non-Silver TI-84 Plus can hold around 20 seconds. The audio quality is equally impressive.
And last but not least, in 1st Place, getting over 50% of the votes, and taking the official title for Project of the Year 2023, we have Celtic CE by RoccoLox Programs! They have successfully created the first hook-based TI-BASIC library for the TI-84 Plus CE, which allows TI-BASIC programmers to use a number of graphical and utility operations which are not possible or extremely slow with vanilla TI-BASIC. It also features detailed and concise documentation, making it easy to work with despite the scale of the library. For a good idea of what Celtic can make possible, be sure to check out some of the other projects featured in the PotY.
Thank you to all of our members that participated in the poll, and be sure to keep the great projects coming! Feel free to read more about all of the projects from Projects of the Year 2023 in this article.
