PL Jam has Ended
TheDrone7 (1436)

The programming language jam has officially ended. A thanks to all those who participated. We received a total of 116 submissions! That's how many new programming languages you can now look ahead to seeing more of!

Now that the jam has ended. Here is the criteria that your submissions will be judged upon:

  • Freshness : How novel is the idea behind the language? (This holds the most weight while the rest hold equal weight.)
  • Value : How useful could this language be?
  • Polish : How polished is the language?
  • Technical : Technical difficulty, how interesting is the language for a new learner?

Note : Any changes made after the jam was over i.e. after 00:00 of Sept 1, 2020 will not be taken into account while judging.

There will be a category winner for each of the above and then there will be an overall winner who will get the 10k USD grant.

UPDATE : Sorry for the prolonged silence, there were some complication during the judging, thanks for being patient with us!

Also, thanks again for being a part of this jam and hope to see your future endeavors as well.

JosephSanthosh (1194)

JosephSanthosh (1194)

Yea it is the language of the coding language. @Leroy01010

Some submissions weren't based on the English language 😅 @JosephSanthosh

JosephSanthosh (1194)

smh... All the programming languages has to be in english, and english is a language, so technically the winning language is ENGLISH. Yay! @kshncodes

@JosephSanthosh well, this rules out something. There are plenty of localizations that were submitted.

@JosephSanthosh um, no? that isn't a rule...

JosephSanthosh (1194)

Haha! Do you not know? All posts in have to be in English so that it can be reviewed by a mod, therefore all languages need to be in English! @sugarfi

sugarfi (587)

@JosephSanthosh um, there are plenty of languages whose whole premise is not being english that are being accepted and judged fine. Also, google translate exists...

JosephSanthosh (1194)

If you can't accept the fact that the posts in are supposed to be only in English, then please consult with a mod @CodeLongAndPros. @sugarfi

TheDrone7 (1436)

@JosephSanthosh the posts need to be in English but the languages don't. There are languages such as lassi, egua, Swahili that allow people to code in languages other than English (even though the posts were made in English). There's a big difference between them, don't confuse the post to be the same as the code.

@JosephSanthosh the mods obviously allow non-english langs, or else all the non-english langs would have been disqualified...

JosephSanthosh (1194)

I am referring the word code with the PL Jam. You have to give a description of your PL and it has to be in English. I am not referring to the general term code, which you confused with. @TheDrone7

English? Oh! You mean python. @JosephSanthosh

word code with the PL Jam

What do you mean by that? I don't understand the difference between the general term "code" and the term "code" in the context of the PL jam.

JosephSanthosh (1194)

Well in this context the term 'code' needs to be in English so that the judges can understand what really is going on in their PL. But in the other context of 'code' which everyone uses for their own projects can be in any language as long as the output makes sense. Get what I mean? @fuzzyastrocat

fuzzyastrocat (1263)

@JosephSanthosh I still don't really understand... many PL's submitted (the PL's themselves, not the posts) are not in English
