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.

Prizes

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

Subjects

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.

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). ;)
