Hi everyone,

Like every year, TI organizes a huge event, for teachers (mostly) of all around the world : the T³ international conference.
They feature several hundreds sessions about the TI Education technology, from using the SmartView software, to advanced programming.
A very expected meeting for all enthusiasts :)
You can find more info about it here : http://education.ti.com/en/us/pd/international/about


This year, the conference (the 25th !) will be held in Philadelphia (Pennsylvania, USA), from March 8th to 10th, as announced a while ago by TI. (More info here : http://education.ti.com/en/us/professional-development/t3-philadelphia )


And... like last year in Chicago, I have been invited by TI ! I'll be newsing these 3 days about all the exciting events ! In fact, I'll even talk too (like our friend Christopher "KermM" Mitchell from Cemetech, about z80 programming !), and my speech is going to be about advanced Lua Programming, during the "SLUG Fest" ( SLUG as in Super Lua User Group ;) ), with John Powers (TI), Steve Arnold (CompassTech)... (No need to hide it, I'm excited about it, thanks TI :D)
Take a look at the program and tell me if there are any thing you'd like to know more about, maybe I'll have time to go :)


Anyway... TI has got two nice surprises for us all, for the occasion of this 25th T3 conference :
Want more info before buying at this incredible price ? Take a look at our news about them ;)
Here's the presentation video :

T3 2013 - Press Release :
Spoiler For Spoiler:
Quote
Actress Mayim Bialik and Former NASA Astronaut Leland Melvin
Talk STEM Education at Texas Instruments 25th Annual
T3 International Conference

TI’s premier professional development event for math and science educators offers innovative ways to integrate technology and content into classrooms to increase student understanding and achievement
 
DALLAS (March 6, 2013) – The Texas Instruments (TI) 25th Annual Teachers Teaching with Technology™ (T3) International Conference will open and close with inspiring STEM-focused keynotes, kicking off with a welcome address by former astronaut and NFL player Leland Melvin and ending with a big bang when actress and neuroscientist Mayim Bialik takes the stage.
 
The 25th annual T3 International Conference brings together education experts, thought leaders, and math and science teachers with more than 400 sessions covering the most relevant topics in education today. Educators can also participate in sessions about integrating TI’s math and science learning technology and content into their classrooms, including the new TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition and the recently-announced TI-NspireTM Apps for iPad.
 
“For 25 years, TI and the T3 organization have provided the best professional development resources for educators around the world. Classroom education technology has evolved tremendously over the years, and TI has been at the forefront of this evolution providing professional development and training for tens of thousands of educators each year,” said Melendy Lovett, president of Texas Instruments Education Technology. “We have seen an explosion in the integration of new technologies that are helping students touch math and science in ways we only dreamed of 25 years ago. Though our technology has changed throughout the years, our commitment to supporting educators remains the same by providing quality professional development that enables mathematics and science educators to be successful in the classroom.”
 
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the T3 International Conference, TI is offering a special, limited-time $25.00 discount on its all-in-one TI-Nspire Apps for iPad March 6-10, 2013.*
 
“The enthusiasm of the educators attending T3 International is just thick in the air. Everyone is so excited about what they’re learning and getting to re-connect with our T3 family each year,” said Jill Gough, Atlanta-based math educator and T3 Instructor. “We count on each other for motivation and encouragement. This is the place to share ideas and experiences, and we can be globally connected in our own education to help further the education of our students.”
 
“Our goal for the T3 International Conference is to provide educators with the right tools and resources that are critical to both their daily classroom instruction and the long-term success of their students,” said Lovett. “Attendees will have numerous opportunities to learn from and network with some of the best math and science educators from around the world, then take home ideas and strategies they can implement in their classrooms immediately.”
 
Download the T3 International Conference App
TI is offering a T3 International Conference App for iPhone and iPad to help teachers navigate the conference and get the most of the T3 experience.

Not surprisingly, there are seven (and only seven) programming sessions (from what I read on the PDF file).
Due to dissatisfaction, I will be inactive on Omnimaga until further notice. (?? THP hasn't been much success and there's also the CE. I might possibly be here for a while.)
If you want to implore me to come back, or otherwise contact me, I can be found on GitHub (bluebear94), Twitter (@melranosF_), Reddit (/u/Fluffy8x), or e-mail (if you know my address). As a last resort, send me a PM on Cemetech (bluebear94) or join Touhou Prono (don't be fooled by the name). I've also enabled notifications for PMs on Omnimaga, but I don't advise using that since I might be banned.

Interesting. If you hear some new info about upcoming products, let us know when you return! :D

Sure, even though I'd tweet about it live if possible ;)

Not surprisingly, there are seven (and only seven) programming sessions (from what I read on the PDF file).
Actually, there is also "Authoring" in addition to "Programming". Which makes it a total of 15 (maybe more if some other involve prog)

Did you get more info about the 84+CSE, such as if the existing bugs will be fixed, estimated release timeframe (such as a specific month) and if improvements might be done?

I would hate if I just spent $899.99 on an iPad just to be able to use this $30 app, only to find out it crashes x.x

Weirdly enough, it never crashed for me on the latest version.

They follow the reviews carefully though, so they are probably aware of whatever's wrong.

You missed my point. Of course TI is aware and probably anticipated that their app would be buggy which seems to be their normal.  The question is what are they going to do about it if any thing.  The clowns in Texas are playing in a different league now. Apple isn't going to tolerate a app and the resulting customer complaints. So I'm wanting to know it TI thinks they can treat Apple's customers the way they do their own by ignoring customer complaints.

From what I heard from people under NDA, they tend to listen a bit more to complaints now. The problem is that they still take a long while to fix stuff. For example, the TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition has some minor bugs which are now known by TI, but no new OS update have come out yet.

However, it seems that Casio and HP are even worse for bug fixing: The HP-39gII has been out since 2012, yet it's so unstable that it often becomes unuseable until you reformat it. A new OS came out recently, but it was pulled from the site after it was discovered that it was even worse than the previous release.

Casio users usually have to wait half a year before major bugs are fixed and some that have been around for a decade or more are still around.

At least, though, Casio calcs are cheaper.
