PL Jam RESULTS!
The wait is officially over! In July 2020, we announced a codejam asking you to develop a language between Aug 10 and Aug 31. After a long wait, we have the results for the jam!
And the winner is - BASIL!. Congratulations to @basilTeam who worked hard on this project and made the entire thing within the time frame for the jam! Read more about it in our blog post!
There is also something special for you. I personally went through every single lang jam submission, learned all your langs and created this showcase website!
There might be some human errors where I might have missed one of your submissions in the showcase or the sample code might be wrong. To request any sort of changes for your own language, you can E-Mail me at [email protected] requesting the change. Please make sure to use the E-Mail ID you used to register your account on repl.it to confirm that you are indeed requesting a change for a language that you did work on.
That's all for now folks! Thanks again for being patient and waiting with us for these results. Hope to see you soon.
@generationXcode While it does seem like they didn't give comments to the top-voted languages, it must be just a coincidence since they didn't give any comments to a few langs like Sen either. I do find it odd that they didn't give all the langs comments (why do comments in the first place if some people just don't get them), but I think they did see them all.
Awesome! I want to learn a low level language - if Basil matures, I might use it.
@HarperframeInc Just a note — what makes Basil cool is that, while it has the speed of a low-level language (at least I think, that's its deal but I haven't tried it yet), it's a high-level language. If you're looking for a low-level language, I'm not sure if Basil would fit that criteria, but I'd learn it regardless.
good job basil team. I feek so sad tho... my language didbt get picked anywhere. I have lost at every jam i have ever participated in. Ahhh the results always makes me feel like a dumb little egg. gg tho lol
I'm incredibly sad... I thought we had something special but it was just compared to JS and that was it...
@Zavexeon Hmm... doesn't seem that similar to JS actually. It kinda reminds me of Haskell (though I don't know much of Haskell), like it combines a structured form you see in many languages, with some functional stuff in there too (I don't really know what I'm taking about though).
Congrats Basil!!! Really unexpected! Also, will we be emailed our results for our own langs? I just wanted to improve mine using the results if there were to be any.
