Title: TI-Concours 2014
Post by: noelthebest on December 26, 2013, 02:45:10 pm
Hello everyone !

That's official, TI-Concours has started today ! Of course, I hope that this fourth edition of the contest will be full of success.

What is the TI-Concours ?

Created in 2011, TI-Concours is an international calculator programming contest, focusing on TI-z80 and TI-Nspire.
For the 2014 edition, four categories (and thus four languages) are allowed :

* TI-Basic z80 (excepting PCSE);
* Axe;
* z80 assembly (excepting PCSE);
* Nspire Lua.

Veterans will notice that 68K TI-Basic is not in the course anymore.

For 2014, the contest will be divided into two rounds : qualifications and final.

Qualifications

As you can guess by the name, qualifications will select people for the final round : they are made of one or two imposed subjects depending on the language.

The setting of these imposed subject that made their first appearance in the first edition of the contest made the TI-Concours unique by his way of functioning. Not only they permit to show the programming skills of each contestant, but they only show their ability to follow rules and constraints (hence the name, "imposed subjects").

The main advantage of these subjects is that they allow for fair and objective grading : everyone gives back the "same" program !

Once this is done, all contestants are graded out of 300 points, and the bests of each category will be qualified for the final round.
Please note that in the Nspire Lua category, there will only be one subject for 2 weeks, graded out of 300 points. In other categories, there are two one-week subjects, graded out of 100 and 200 respectively.

The final round


Qualified contestants participate in two new rounds : a 20-minutes oral (no preparation) and an on-calc test (three hours plus 20 minutes to upload all programs). The oral, which is done with a jury member, consists in questions about the programming language concerned by the contestant's category, but also on TI calculators in general. The main goal is to be as effective as possible, effectively the faster you answer questions, the more points you get ! The on-calc test consists in several programs that you'll have to write in a specified amount of time. A common theme will lead the writing of these programs, we hope, with a funny side Wink
Those two rounds are graded out of 400, for a final total out of 1100 points (try to get above 1000 first).

Dates


Registering starts the 26th of December and ends the 13th of January for the jury. Contestants are free to register until the first round is done in the concerned category (so yeah, you can register one day before the deadline of round 1).

(http://www.ti-concours.com/content/cal14.png)
Orals will take place from 5th to 11th of April, and on-calc tests the 12th and 13th of April. The plan is to have definitive results the 28th of April. You can note that the contest starts early to end early (relative to previous years), so that noone has problems with exams or anything.

Cool! Also, for some of the English readers, they might mix up " (excepting PCSE)" as " (accepting PCSE)" since a bunch of English speakers mix up accept/except. In this case, the PCSE models are excluded.

I might join, but I don't think I will be able to do well. It is my last semester of college coming up, so I will be very distracted.

ClrDraw : when the contest starts, you'll have one week or two to make the program you are asked to. There will be one or two rounds like this, and then if you do well you can enter the final round. ;)

Xeda : I hope you will be able to enter the contest. ;)

Yes, actually there were only two participants last year, therefore we thought that it would be useless to keep this category.

I'd use the TOMEK one just in case. The MIND one was from last year.

NoelTheBest, I'm done with mine.

I went with the MIND name, and I have a title screen, instructions, a sidebar, fast wincheck, and all on the homescreen. (No AI, though. :( )

When should I upload it, and how?

Make a new one, name it TOMEK, put the MIND code in TOMEK using 2nd-Rcl, then reupload it.

This is mine, in case you were all wondering (with stats for Noel):

Also, my program is bigger and is actually seven, but it has AI.

Maybe you got a better score because

1. you didn't use subprograms
2. in-game help
3. better graphics

But at least I have the AI. The reason why you're only three points ahead.

Also, will we be penalized for displaying leading zeroes?

Edit: Made program add and multiply 2 digits at a time, but 50! still takes a minute or two. I wonder how 135! will fare.

Edit 2: According to my model, it will take 9 times as long as 50!.

Mine is 8 seconds for 50!, 47 seconds for 100!, and 99 seconds for 135!. I should make a different algorithm...

Good thing this isn't a Casio fx-CP400 ClassPad Basic contest... (it would take an entire set of new batteries just to compute 30) O.O

Now that I think about it, I should re-implement my program using lists instead.

That's what I did! Go for it!

(Considering I won't be entering...mine is too slow :-\ )

Post by: blue_bear_94 on March 02, 2014, 11:24:35 pm
Good news: I rewrote my algorithm using lists, and it now reaches speeds comparable to Xeda's.
Title: Re: TI-Concours 2014
Post by: Spenceboy98 on March 03, 2014, 07:36:56 pm
My factorial program takes about 30 seconds to compute 135! and that's before displaying it :/ Also, it actually can compute up to 3248!, but it cannot display it, yet. That would take a really long time.
...
...Axe, right? :-\ Because mine takes over a minute for 135!!

But hey, it works!

Mine takes over 9 minutes to do 135!

Not sure how to optimize (I'm using lists). I'll figure something out though. :P

Post by: blue_bear_94 on March 03, 2014, 08:28:02 pm
I know how to make the program compute 135! in fewer than 40 seconds, so wait until the round ends. Hee hee.

Post by: Spenceboy98 on March 03, 2014, 11:10:14 pm
I got it down to 8 min and 30 sec. :D I figure my code may be small, but the way it's calculating takes forever. I'll just keep on working at it. :P

Why are there only half of the Axe results ? I don't even know what round it is.

Hmm, I emailed that I had to forfeit... I don't have the time this year :/ (graduating, work, papers, homework, presentations)

I have no clue how I got a 30 in the Axe category. I think I only sent one program and it was a dud.
