End of the Nspire Lua Contest

Some time ago, we announced a contest : Nspire programming in Lua . This was a large scale contest since the total sum of the prizes was of about € 750, including three awesome TI-Nspire CAS CX !

The contest is now over !

With not less than 14 Lua programs submitted, we think this is a great success for a language so “new” on the TI-Nspire calculator!

We would like to thank all participants, regardless of their results!

The judges (Levak, Critor and myself) are going to analyze everything you have done in the coming days, and the results should be there soon !

In the meantime, here is the list (just name + Screenshot) of entries received.

Great TI-Nspire Lua Contest 2011

The contest is now over, thanks to everybody who participated !

 

The websites Inspired-Lua and TI-Planet, with our partner R. JARRETY (where you can order your TI calcs with great TI-Planet prices), are organizing a new, great contest  in  a scale never seen before !

First, for the first time in the history of our site, the competition crosses the borders of France and whatever your country of residence, you can take part in it !

Moreover, the prize is absolutely amazing and unprecedented :
-> 3 TI-Nspire CAS CX <- , so that’s three times more likely to win!

 

No, you’re not dreaming !

You only have to create a Lua program for TI-Nspire in connection with one of these three categories:

  • Mathematics
  • Physics and Chemistry
  • Games

You’ll need an Nspire OS (or software) 3.0 or later (preferably 3.0.2 – see links).

The only requirement is that your program is suitable for a French user. If your program displays text, use single common words in a foreign language is tolerated.

Use Google Translate if needed.

To participate, simply send an email to    info @ tiplanet . org by November 7th, 2011 23:59 GMT +2 (DST French) with these information :

  • your full name
  • your full address
  • a valid email address
  • which is *only* used to send your reward

  • the chosen category
  • an archive as an attachment

The attached archive will contain:

  • the program format ‘tns’
  • source code
  • a description in a file ‘readme.txt’
  • possibly documentation (format and contents are free)

You can submit only one program for the competition, so you can participate in only one category. Choose the right one wisely !

However, it is perfectly possible to update an already submitted or even change the program or the category you chose just by sending a new email to participate, since only the last one received will be taken into account.

Good luck to everybody !
