TI-Planet is glad to invite you to compete in TI-Concours 2017 ! :D

The TI-Concours

The TI-Concours is a programming contest on TI calculators, which was created in 2011. It was held once a year from 2011 to 2014, and in 2016, and lets all coders, whether they are experienced or not, challenge themselves by solving programming tasks. It is already the sixth edition of the contest, and no matter your experience in the programming field, it is an great opportunity to compete against other community members from several countries !  ;D

Hall of fame

Note : only TI-Basic z80/ez80 winners are mentioned here.

2011 : Loulou_54
2012 : Torio
2013 : Deep Thought
2014 : m@thieu41
2016 : Ruadh
2017 : maybe you? :D

The TI-Concours in 2017


This year, we decided to make only one category : z80 and ez80 TI-Basic. For those who are not sure of what it is, recall that it is the Basic language which is available on calculators such as a TI-82 Advanced or a TI-83 Premium CE, and a few other compatible calculators.


The contest will be held from March 25th to April 23rd, and will last 30 consecutive days. This year, it is not cut into separate rounds anymore, you will have to manage your time by yourself! :D

What you will have to do

Earlier today, three different tasks were released simultaneously. Each of them focuses on a specific topic:

  • a fun task, that is to say, a game to make;
  • an algorithmic task, which asks you to solve an algorithmic problem in the most efficient way speaking about speed;
  • an optimisation task, which requires to produce a sub-optimal solution to a problem and maximize its score.
The goal is the following: in 30 days, solve at least two tasks as well as you can. Of course, you can solve all three of them, but at the end, the final ranking will be based on people's two best scores. For every solved task you will get a score between 0 and 100, but these scores will be harmonized in order to guarantee the fairest possible ranking.


If you win, you will enter TI-Concours's legend, and you will thus be covered with honor and glory. :D
If you think this is not already enough, you may chose one of the following prizes. The winner choses what he wants to get, the second contestant gets what remains.

First prize:
  • a TI-Nspire CX CAS;
  • a TI-Planet sticker.
Second prize:
  • a TI-83 Premium CE;
  • a TI-Planet sticker.
Furthermore, the winner for every single task will win an additional TI-Planet sticker, and all the contestants that get a strictly positive score will win a TI-Planet premium account:D

Other remarks

Everybody can compete. However, in previous editions, people with the highest degree didn't necessarily win... :P
Please note, that you will not be asked advanced knowledge in topics such as mathematics.

You will have to send your programs by e-mail. All the details are written in the tasks' statements. Be sure that you have a link cable in order to transfer your programs from your calculator to your computer. If you are facing issues related to this, you can ask questions on this forum or on the chat.

One last thing: have fun! We are sure that you will learn something from entering this contest.  ;)

Good luck to everybody!  ;D

Approximately 26.5 hours left. Do not forget to send us what you have done, (hopefully) in both categories.  ;D

Be careful, the deadline is tomorrow at 23:59 (UTC+1). ;)

TI Calculators / TI-Concours 2016 !
« on: January 11, 2016, 12:50:59 pm »
Today I am very glad to let the TI-Concours 2016  begin ! :D

What is the TI-Concours ?

Created in 2011, the TI-Concours is a programming contest on TI calculators. Initially made for high school students who had a z80 calculator, he gradually extended to all categories of age, and other platforms and languages.
Organized four years in a row, it quickly became a major contest, with participants from several different communities on the net. :D
Unfortunately canceled in 2015, I am really happy to organize a fifth edition, which I hope will be full of success. :)

How the contest will run

This year, there are two categories :

1st category : z80 and ez80 TI-Basic.
2nd category : ez80 Asm / C ez80 and Nspire Basic/Lua.

From January 11th, you will have four weeks to enter the qualification round. There will be several questions, which will all consist in making a program on your calculator. Subjects are made to be entertaining, so that you may have fun in participating and improving yourself at the same time. :D

The questions' difficulty is globally increasing. It is not necessary to do everything, and for that reason I advise you to send us what you have done whatever your degree of progress. ;)

After this qualification round, the best participants will be selected for the final, which will be held in the beginning of March. These people will be given another subject, which will be harder. The time limit will also be strict : only 3 hours and 30 minutes !

At the end, there will be a ranking : you can get at most 100 points for the qualification round, 400 points for the final.
You may participate in both categories.


Here are the prizes for both categories :

  • 1er prix : 1 TI-83 Premium CE + 2 TI-Planet stickers + TI-Planet Premium account;
  • 2ème prix : 1 TI-82 Advanced + 1 TI-Planet sticker + TI-Planet Premium account;
  • 3ème prix :  TI-Planet Premium account.
Another TI-Planet Premium account will be given to the qualifications' winners, in case they wouldn't be on the podium. : :D


Qualifications : 1st category
Qualifications : 2nd category
In the first category, the document was updated on January 11th, at 13:24 P.M.

Good luck to everyone !  :D

Note : if there are mistakes, and especially english mistakes, please tell me quickly.

I could not come up with with a better title, good thing you where able to :)

Yes i know we have non calc sections, but they are not very prominent, unlike Cemetech (who have hardware and MC) and CodeWalrus (who have a bunch of different stuff), Omnimaga seems to be calc only. Once again, it does have the non-calc sections, but its not like anyone joins for non-calc related resones ;)

I agree with the last paragraph. That is why i suggested scrapping the hiatus-ed projects and replacing them with active ones. I would rather have a few active ones then a huge list of inactive ones  :)

Lastly, is there any chance of an omnimaga hosted contest? And btw, on the topic of contests, what happened to @noelthebest and their contest? (ti-conquest(?))

The TI-Concours 2015 is starting on January 11th. You should get an e-mail if you filled the form I talked about previously.
I will certainly post a topic on this website when it starts. ;)

That's cool, thanks. ;)

Read english topic here.


la probabilité qu'un TI-Concours 2016 ait lieu tend petit à petit vers 1, et afin de l'organiser au mieux je cherche à déterminer quelles catégories il faut que je garde.

Pour rappel, le TI-Concours est un concours de programmation sur calculatrices. Organisé de 2011 à 2014 puis annulé en 2015, il consistera cette année en la réalisation de plusieurs programmes généralement ludiques et visant à stimuler votre goût pour la programmation.  :D

N.B. : plus d'épreuve orale désormais. ;)

Si vous êtes intéressés par ce concours, et que vous allez probablement participer, merci de remplir ce formulaire :
Ceci ne représente en aucun cas une inscription ou une pré-inscription au concours.

Merci beaucoup !


N.B. : pour ceux qui ne parlent pas anglais : on vous demande les catégories qui vous intéressent, puis les récompenses que vous aimeriez gagner, puis votre adresse électronique pour qu'on vous prévienne quand le concours commence, et enfin, vous pouvez écrire ce que vous voulez. C'est un français qui lit vos réponses, donc vous pouvez répondre en français !

TI Calculators / [survey] Concerning TI-Concours 2016
« on: October 29, 2015, 09:15:31 am »
Update : the TI-Concours 2016 starts on January 11th ! Get ready ! :D


the TI-Concours 2016 will probably be held in a few months, and now I am trying to decide which languages will be allowed this year.

The TI-Concours is a (french) programming contest in which you use your calculator. Il was held once a year from 2011 to 2014 but it was cancelled in 2015. In order to win this year you will have to make several programs that will mostly be entertaining, so that you may enjoy it.  ;)

There is no oral exam from now on. ;)

If you are interested by this contest, and if you are willing to participate when it starts, then please help by filling this form :
This is not a registration form, this is a survey to help me choose which categories there will be in 2016.

Thanks !

I you don't manage to, please send it to us by e-mail (but it worked for TI-Basic programmers, so... ;) ).
