Code Jam #10

Hey, there fellow replers! Today we're announcing the repl.it community Code Jam #10.

What is this?

These are one of the community managed hackathons where you are asked to develop something based on a theme within a period of 2 days.

The theme on which you will be asked to develop something will be revealed along with the announcement of the jam's beginning.

The jam will begin on 24th November 2020 at 10:00 PT or 18:00 GMT. The participants will have 2 days to work on their submissions and the jam will end on 26th November 2020 at 10:00 AM PT or 18:00 GMT.

Why should I participate?

Well, most importantly, you get to practice stuff you have learned, and make a real-world project using your newly learned knowledge, have a fun competitive experience. And as for the prizes, the jam winner will get a special role on our Discord server along with the chance to get a custom emoji of their choice added to the server and finally 1 month of free hacker plan!

How do I get in?

That's the easy part. Just fill out this form and consider yourself in!

But I don't know what language I will be using.

That's easy, you can create any language's repl right now, paste its link in the form. During the jam, if you decide you want to change the language, you can delete the repl you created just now and then create a new repl with the same name as the repl you created just now.

Example: -

  1. Create a new repl named Jam-10 with the language Python 3.

But you decided to use Node.js instead of Python 3.

  1. Delete the repl named Jam-10.
  2. Create a new repl and name it Jam-10.

This way, the same link you submitted in the form will work for the newly created repl now.


And that's it for today, comment down below if you have any further questions and I will try to answer them to the best of my abilities. See you on 24th November with the topic of the jam! Have fun and stay safe in the meantime!

I don't have discord :(

PDanielY (1150)

@DynamicSquid squids don't use discord?

Bookie0 (4607)

@PDanielY ig electronics underwater are bad..

DynamicSquid (4398)

@PDanielY No, like Bookie said electronics don't work so well underwater

DynamicSquid (4398)

@rediar bro atlantis is underwater

realTronsi (782)

@DynamicSquid take out the nerves from you body and wire them into a circuit, then use your body parts such as tentacles to assemble a phone, then the electrical signals can power the phone, and your tentacles can grow back :D

firefish (794)

@DynamicSquid me niehter
lol i can't spell toady

SeamusDonahue (70)

then how are you on repl.it.... major plot hole revealed @DynamicSquid

Whippingdot (65)

What do you mean how are you on repl.it. I am on repl.it while i am not allowed to use discord. @SeamusDonahue

EpicGamer007 (801)

@Whippingdot if ur under 13 ur technically not allowed to be on replit..

Whippingdot (65)

Well, I didn't say I was under 13. My dad doesn't allow me to use Discord. @EpicGamer007

SeamusDonahue (70)

I was pointing out a plot hole with the "squids cant use electronics" plot @Whippingdot

DynamicSquid (4398)

@SeamusDonahue no. absolutely no suspicion must be aroused

SeamusDonahue (70)

I'm sorry, your not a master of stealthy like octo dad. not all cephalopods are cut out for stealth... @DynamicSquid

DynamicSquid (4398)

@SeamusDonahue nope, you're wrong. squids are clearly the bestester of all animals. I should make a tutorial on why squids are the best animal...

SeamusDonahue (70)

you ever seen splatoon? the octolings use all this crazy tech, the inklings (squid based creatures) don't! @DynamicSquid

SeamusDonahue (70)

well no you can't hear me, because I'm communicating by text. @DynamicSquid

SeamusDonahue (70)

Yes, I am communicating through a text box, no audio is exiting your computer. @DynamicSquid

Techcraft7 (1)

@realTronsi I cant stop laughing at this lol

RyanGardiner1 (8)

@Whippingdot Same, my Mom doesn't let me use Discord, she hates it.

Felixelgato0235 (0)

@DynamicSquid go to the aquarioum there is internet there or buy a water proof phone

Felixelgato0235 (0)

@realTronsi That is a not so great idea but the squid can try it.

AmazingMech2418 (941)

Ah! It's themed? I was hoping that I could do something in Quil, but it doesn't have IO, just state probabilities... I don't think you can make a themed Quil program without making an entirely new modified version of Quil... I'm currently the only Quil programmer on Repl.it though... (I made a basic tutorial though! Part 2 coming soon too!) LOL!

AmazingMech2418 (941)

@AmazingMech2418 There are literally only 2 Quil posts in all of Repl Talk... And both are by me. LOL!

Kookiez (237)

@AmazingMech2418 what what what what's quil, never heard of it

AmazingMech2418 (941)

@Kookiez Quil is the Quantum Instruction Language. Basically, what you'd use in quantum computing! (other than QASM or something else similar)

DynamicSquid (4398)

@AmazingMech2418 You're like the best programmer for these exotic languages!

RayhanADev (1002)

@AmazingMech2418 ah that’s hot. Can you teach me?

AmazingMech2418 (941)

@RayhanADev Sure! Actually, part 1 of my tutorial is out now! https://repl.it/talk/learn/Quantum-Computing-and-Quil-for-Python-Programmers-Part-1/78347 I'm planning on making part 2 soon and then a tutorial on how to make a quantum computer simulator in Python!

DynamicSquid (4398)

@AmazingMech2418 I really like how the first thought when you see a code jam is quantum computing lol. Kind of excited on what you'll make!

ch1ck3n (108)

@Kookiez queasy uneasy ill leopard

realTronsi (782)

@AmazingMech2418 someone else made a quil post >:D

was not waiting 8 days to tell you this
AmazingMech2418 (941)

@realTronsi I don't think advertisements for companies that use Quil repls for no reason count. LOL!
Also against the rules...

realTronsi (782)

@AmazingMech2418 oh well I didn't look into the post lol I guess you're still the only one (not that I can't fix that)

I think you're on the wrong place for quantum computer development (or simulated quantum computer), repl isn't really suited to that high accuracy and memory intensive stuff

AmazingMech2418 (941)

@realTronsi Yeah, but I don't have an IBM account yet. LOL!

realTronsi (782)

@AmazingMech2418 just build your own quantum computer

JBYT27 (530)

Sounds fun! I look forward to this!

JaydenLiu1 (9)

@JBYT27 Yeah! But is it one of those PLJams where you create a programming language?

JBYT27 (530)

No, it says in the post that they will reveal the theme on Nov. 24. Hope this helped! ;) @JaydenLiu1

JaydenLiu1 (9)

@JBYT27 Thank you for the help!

JaydenLiu1 (9)

@JaydenLiu1 I can't wait to see what you guys submit and what the theme is and meet the community!

SwaroopBappanad (48)

Uhh, it asks for permission every time I open it.

firefish (794)

#10? I didn't know there have been that many...
And um...

RayhanADev (1002)

@TheDrone7 This post actually isn’t an announcement xD have an updoot

SharpCodeDev (57)

I accidentally sent the wrong Repl in the form. This is the correct link. Also, what is the theme?

programmeruser (148)

@SharpCodeDev the theme will be announced at 24th November 2020 at 10:00 PT or 18:00 GMT (see the post) which is also 1:00 PM EST.

Kookiez (237)

@programmeruser also we'll work on the repl at 1:00 pm when the theme is revealed right?

InvisibleOne (511)

Do we have to have discord? Cause I don't

Kookiez (237)

@InvisibleOne you don't have to, i left it blank

InvisibleOne (511)

Same, I was just wondering if you would still win even if you don't have discord @Kookiez

Kookiez (237)

@InvisibleOne yeah do you get an alternate prize or something if you don't have discord and win? was what i was wondering.

TheDrone7 (1446)

@InvisibleOne @Kookiez the prizes are all written in there so there's no alternative. If you don't have discord, you will only get the hacker plan (and a fun time hopefully).

Kookiez (237)

@TheDrone7 oh ok! I was just participating for fun since it's my first jam :)

DonkeyRide123 (7)

When does it start and end in ET?

Kookiez (237)

@DonkeyRide123 Just google it lol. And for your convenience, it starts at 1:00 pm et time. and it ends at 1:00 et time too

code913 (13)

what time will it be in kolkata, india when the jam starts? Idk how to convert times

TheDrone7 (1446)

@code913 You can just look up something like 10:00 AM PT TO IST in your preferred search engines such as Google or DDG. It is 23:30 (11:30 PM) for Indian time.

ch1ck3n (108)

Where will the theme be posted?

TheDrone7 (1446)

@ch1cken they will be posted right here on the forums. I'll be sure to pin the post so it's easier to find as well.

CameronCamloh (0)

How do we submit it?

codealt1 (0)

I have the hacker plan, but is going to the Frontend Masters Vue.js workshop for November 24.

noahswadi (0)

who want some good stuff dm me on discord Mayplex#2986

JaydenLiu1 (9)

Does anybody want to join a team with me? If so, then please put your Discord ID in the comment section. Mine is "Suspense_Comix #4896"

ObiVibKenobi (19)

Uhhh what’s the code jam about?

JaydenLiu1 (9)

I don't really want a hacker plan as I have my free plan but thanks for telling us some other alternative prizes!

JaydenLiu1 (9)

I have a discord server although I don't really spend a lot of time on it, in fact, I don't spend a lot of time on my computer which is a problem because the Code Jam is 2 days long and I have school.

JaydenLiu1 (9)

@JaydenLiu1 If it's on my Thanksgiving break, I'm fine with it.

JaydenLiu1 (9)

Woohoo! Can't wait to see you guys there!
Also, is the Code Jam one of those PLJams where you create a programming language?

Kookiez (237)

@JaydenLiu1 did you read the post? it says the theme will be posted on November 24.

JaydenLiu1 (9)

@Kookiez Oh yeah! 2 more days to go!

Jackbaklava (24)

But is the jam going to ask us to do something very advanced like make an os? Or is it going to be intermediate level?

JaydenLiu1 (9)

@Jackbaklava It might be a jam where you can create anything you like.

JaydenLiu1 (9)

@JaydenLiu1 I like creating programming languages, so I might create one if this is one of those PLJams or one of those "Do whatever you'd like as long as it fits the theme of the jam" jams.

code913 (13)

so we basically fill out a form, create a repl with either python or node.js as language then wait till 24 november for the theme to be revealed?

code913 (13)

nvm they said any language

CyberHacker101 (8)

I don't have discord

AJDevelopment (83)

i'm joining but if i win i dont want prizes

RedPandaCode (25)

When is the deadline for joining?

TheDrone7 (1446)

@RedPandaCode it's when the jam starts i.e. 24 Nov 2020 10:00 AM PT
