How to submit your PL Jam entry
amasad (3248)

Hello everyone! We're less than a week away from the end of the jam so it's time to start polishing up your projects and submitting them. We'll close submissions on Sep 1st.

To submit:

  • Using this forum, one of the team members should make a submission.
  • Simply click "add post" and select the "Jam" board. Make sure to mention the team your posting on behalf and your team members.
  • Pitch your language! Describe the main idea behind it, sample code, design decisions, technical trade-offs, roadmap, and whatever else you think is relevant (we support markdown)
  • Add the main source repl. If it's split between multiple projects, add all of them describing what each does
  • Ideally, judges can simply click run and be able to interact with your language. If that's not possible, then please add instructions on how judges can run your language and try a sample program

We're all very excited to see what you all made!

Any news on "Individual categories and other prizes coming soon"?

amasad (3248)

@brianjenkins94 There will be individual category winners and prizes, but we decided against releasing the criteria ahead of judging so that submissions are not tailor-made to fit the criteria, which we thought will be counter-productive to our goal of getting more "fresh" ideas. Sorry should've clarified earlier.

HahaYes (1900)

@amasad ah that makes sense of why that wasn't added. Thanks for the clarification!

So the deadline is 11:59pm PST on August 31. Right?

jfdoming (1)

@mzan based on the discussion lower down I think so.

fuzzyastrocat (1504)

Looking forward to the submissions here!

SudhamJayanthi (2)

@fuzzyastrocat Shall I join with you ? So it becomes a team !

fuzzyastrocat (1504)

@SudhamJayanthi Sadly, probably not. I'm unsure as to whether registration is still allowed, and there's very little time left.

SudhamJayanthi (2)

@fuzzyastrocat We need to submit it directly I guess....So no problem with registration maybe. If you are interested ping me !

fuzzyastrocat (1504)

@SudhamJayanthi I'd confirm with @amasad before jumping to conclusions. (is registration still allowed)

matthewproskils (459)

Is it possible to put more than one repl inside the post or will we have to d o that with links?

generationXcode (303)

Umm how to post as a team? I have the repl on the teams account, but there isnt any way to post as a team...

amasad (3248)

@generationXcode One person on the team can post, just make sure to tag your team name. I'll clarify in the post.

@amasad When do you think results for the winners will be released?

UTx10101 (7)

Hello, everyone. I am facing a problem I was following the Repl.it blog for further updates on this Jam and unfortunately I didn't join the discord server to get updates(was unaware) until a week has passed after Jam ended.

Can I please submit the entry now.

Mainmenu (11)

https://repl.it/talk/challenge/Pable-Programming-Language/51774 look at Pable, I don't know if anyone has checked it out yet.

ktango (13)

@amasad I want to double check that Pebble is a valid submission. We started the project in June just for fun, and have added a LOT more functionality during the span of the Hackathon.


JohnMontgomery1 (7)

ABCode ? ....

PattanAhmed (1384)

Where and when will be the winner announced?

fuzzyastrocat (1504)

People seem to be posting things on the Jam feed without a team — is this allowed?
