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.
Guess what guys? I managed to get a leakage of the language which won. The language is English...
@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.
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
Jams were done at 9/1, it is 10/1. I would really like even a mention like "Jugging is hard and is taking awhile" or "Something happened stand by!". Idk give us something.
By any chance, could the "polish" category be relative to the time spent? Rex isn't too polished because we only had 10 days and didn't have all day each day, so we don't have OOP finished in it and don't have closures or proper data types yet.
Nice, looking forward to everyone's submissions!
A question: by "changes" do you mean changes to the language or the post? My headers got ruined because repl.it changed their styling after I posted my post. I just fixed it now, but if you're saying that the changes won't be taken into account...
