Maxcoderz Programming Competition
Posted by Michael on 10 March 2005, 16:05 GMT

Many people have written in about the annual Maxcoderz Programming Competition. This year they are asking for a "demo/animation." The winner will receive a t-shirt and the option to be interviewed by calcwebzine.com. Entries are due by the end of April.

Ticalc.org should make a programming competition theselves. I think that more people would participate because it is a bigger site. More contests=better.

ticalc doesn't have much in the way of prizes. I kind of realized that during last summer's screenshotting project.

in a way just having maybe a link to your site from the ticalc.org homepage (with its page rank of 6) in the news article is pritty good, i'd have that over most any t-shirt, maybe there could be another modual thing on the right which could have links to like the top 3 winners sites, just an idea, but i'd sure enter it

What if Ticalc charged a nominal entry fee? The combined gross could be applied toward a prize. A cool prize might get more authors participation. The competition would force better products. Not to mention, non-coders could make special donations to encourage author participation.

The TI community is the ultimate winner. Hence... a win-win situation.

The idea of a fee, no matter how small, might prevent many people from participating.

Maybe TI can sponsor 3rd party organisations? =)

What about the ticalc.org shop??? You could always give out free mugs, t-shirts, or thongs with a staff member's face on it as prizes.

Yes, I know that the shop isn't real, but we could resurrect it!!!

More contests is better, but they have to be evenly spaced out.

Plus ti used to run app comps a few years ago, maybe they will ressurect that?

Will anyone here be entering?

Is this competition only for TI-83 and TI-83 Plus?

I guess it time to whip out my secret 86 project. Hint: 3D grayscale in a cartoon lab.

Unless you are planning on porting it to the 83/83+, I wouldn't bother.

Son of a $*#@%... I just read the rulz...Oh well, the 83+ screen is too small and doesn't have good greyscale do to a port accessed LCD instead of bitmapped graphics.

Is the MPC only for the z80 calcs ?

It is only open to programs that run on both the 83 and 83+, be it in BASIC or ASM.

BASIC programs can be for the 83 or the 83+ but they don't have to be for both and it doesn't matter if it's not compatible with the 84+ (as maxcoderz is a 83/83+ programming group)

Well, as long as you don't use the Archive or Asm( commands in a BASIC program made on an 83+, it should be just fine running on an 83.

On the site they mention the BASIC and ASM winners competing...it makes me wonder if they'd allow entries with MLC. I know it's only for the 86 right now, but the developers have talked about how it will work on any calc. I've seen some nice screenshots of games...for an on-calc editor it's really good. Maybe in future contests it will be an issue. What do you think?

yeah it would be cool. A TI-83+ version of MLC is currently under developpement and a Casio AFX is coming too and what I like of it is that you can use the TI-BASIC editor to edit your programs and it runs almost as fast as ASM.

Yeah, that's why I mention it. It looks like a really nice language. I can't wait for it to be available for all calcs. I like programming, but don't really because the only time I have that I could program I don't have a computer around, but I'm limited by BASIC.

Yes, it would certainly be cool if they allowed MLC (though I'm already at work on a Basic entry.)
