In seventh grade I needed a new calculator since I was taking Algebra 1. I then went to Target and bought a TI-84+ SE (Good choice in hindsight) for full price (not a good choice in hindsight). Later, I got Cave Story on it and proceeded to break it after getting an ON-Break and Goto-ing. Later, I made a few math solvers and sold them for fifity cents. Later, I became a god at my school for bringing Fruit Ninja. I still manage to impress my friends with little gems I make.
I am a friend.

I think Pimath made a topic about that already. ;)

My teacher had a few ti-83s and 84s, and I took to them immediately, eventually finding out I could program them, even though I had no idea how, but my dad knew and I learned from him.
This used to contain a signature.

In 2000, I had a friend in English class who was one grade higher than me in everything else  but  failed English, so in maths he already needed a graphing calc and he sometimes played games in English classes once we were done with our work. This is when I wanted to buy a 83+ to get into programming. (I finally bought my calc in July 2001)

I dunno, I got a TI-83+ back in 2005 in grade 9 and minutes after I unwrapped it I was already trying to figure out how the PRGM button works.

Yes I did. No idea where or when, though.

Yeah, my sense of déjà vu is tingling.

There are probably 5 or 6 topics about this actually anyway, including some from 2005. :P

When and how did you get into online communities for calcs/progamming?
« Reply #10 on: June 14, 2014, 05:29:35 pm »

I started programming this year (in 6th grade) for TSA when school started. I started with the Norland calculator robot and wondered what all the other commands did. I searched it up, and found a tutorial on Ticalc. At the time, I didn't know what Ticalc was, only the tutorial. Some time later, I explored the site and found out how great it was. At the same time, one of my worst friends bragged to me about his skills and accounts. I discovered Cemetech from him, and from Cemetech, Omnimaga.
I'm 12 right now, and am one of the best TI-BASIC programmers in my school. I'm moving to Santa Barbra, so that might not apply there :(

That's a short summary. I might write a longer one during the summer.

A few days before the beginning of the school year, I got the TI-84+CSE. My brothers previously have had them and said that you can play games on them. Naturally, I was interested. However, when I looked at the package, it said "Programmable Calculator". I was looking for an excuse to learn programming stuff, so I was excited. I got home, looked up how to program on TI Basic Developer, and started to program. I taught one of my friends to program in the middle of the school year, but he has yet to show me a full game.

I taught 5 people this year
1 says he has no time to keep learning (which I doubt)
1 has lost contact with me (triplet with the first)
1 has quit
1 has also lost contact with me
1 thought he could do better than me

Most of them were taught by me on how to use the Norland calc robot.
