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.

FINALLY! And nicely done, I really didn't see that result coming! Basil has a pretty cool compilation/interpretation scheme, so good job @basilTeam!

yay volant!!! <3

DynamicSquid (3609)

Well done Basil! Congrats a ton!!

@DynamicSquid hello mr confuzzled SQUOD

DarkswordsmanJG (11)

I am partly confused but I understood some of it so congrats to Basil

generationXcode (268)

still no comments from the judges... did they see marvin?

fuzzyastrocat (769)

@generationXcode I think the judges basically only gave comments to the langs they liked, which kinda defeats the point of constructive criticism, but idk maybe I'm wrong

generationXcode (268)

@fuzzyastrocat nope. I checked. They gave comments to almost every single language except for the top voted ones. Did they even see ours?

TheDrone7 (1335)

@generationXcode that is just a coincidence because I can confirm they did see every single post that is currently in this board.

fuzzyastrocat (769)

@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.

HarperframeInc (344)

Awesome! I want to learn a low level language - if Basil matures, I might use it.

fuzzyastrocat (769)

@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.

hg0428 (169)

I just noticed that not all the languages got remarks, at first I thought all of them did because Aardvark and a few of my other favorites did.

Epicmuffinepic (61)

@TheDrone7 when will the new language basil(congrats btw) be added to repl.it? because a lot of people have been saying "I am going to learn the winning language!" I think it would be easier to have it on repl.it, other than having the repl.

generationXcode (268)

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

Kookiez (129)

@generationXcode your lang was really good, but the judges didn't even give your team remarks! thats pretty unfair tho...

generationXcode (268)

@OrangeJooce123 thanks! I really feel better. It would have been nice to have some remarks

fuzzyastrocat (769)

@generationXcode Lots of interesting langs got no comments (or sparse comments) so don't feel bad.

AmazingMech2418 (910)


Um... That's not Rex. Did it get mixed up with Night in the judging process?

Also,

Rex isn't even close to JS... I think the judges missed the entire point of the language... Honestly, if anything, it is closer to Dart, but the OOP system is completely different than that anyways...

TheDrone7 (1335)

@AmazingMech2418 I can't speak for the judges but as specified in the post. If you want any changes to be made about the lang please email me at the specified email address with the details.

AmazingMech2418 (910)

@TheDrone7 Okay. I'm just worried that the judges might have gotten confused on what the language actually is.

AmazingMech2418 (910)

@DynamicSquid Is that Night as the sample code? It seems like it.

TheDrone7 (1335)

@AmazingMech2418 I'm not sure rn, I was learning 20 langs a day so I really don't know lol.

DynamicSquid (3609)

@AmazingMech2418 That's the exact same code as on Night's GitHub page... no where close to what Rex is. But even still, I don't think the judges were judging based on the code that they saw off the website, but rather the code on our post.

TheDrone7 (1335)

@DynamicSquid yes, that is correct. This website is just a small personal project of mine that I decided to make for fun. It is in no way officially related to the results.

DynamicSquid (3609)

@TheDrone7 Yeah, but wow, 20 langs a day lol!

AmazingMech2418 (910)

@DynamicSquid Yeah, but with what they said in the notes, it doesn't seem like they really understood the point of the language.

DynamicSquid (3609)

@AmazingMech2418 Yeah, I feel like we weren't the only ones who felt like the judges mischaracterized our langs. Zavexeon also felt the same...

DynamicSquid (3609)

@AmazingMech2418 regardless of the judging though, it was still pretty fun working with you!

TheDrone7 (1335)

@AmazingMech2418 If you think that way then there could've been something missing with how you presented/explained the language. The judges went through each post with great care and patience.

fuzzyastrocat (769)

@TheDrone7 @AmazingMech2418 @DynamicSquid I do think the judges probably put lots of care into the judging process — however, it seems like they really only gave good feedback for the langs they liked, which kinda defeats the point of constructive criticism.

TheForArkLD (716)

Huh, why you choosed lua's clone

hg0428 (169)


Is it supposed to look like that? I can not press on any of them, it brings me to a random one every time.

fuzzyastrocat (769)

@k9chelsea2 @hg0428 It's not supposed to look like that. I'd suggest trying a different browser (like Chrome), since I think others using Safari have noted this problem.

k9chelsea2 (651)

yeh it prolly a safari problem

hg0428 (169)

Well, then @TheDrone7 needs to make it work on Safari. @fuzzyastrocat

TheDrone7 (1335)

@hg0428 I don't. Nobody should use a browser that doesn't support css even ie7 can display properly.

fuzzyastrocat (769)

@hg0428 I think it's the other way around. From my experience with Safari, it often doesn't support the latest JS/CSS technology, and it quickly gets very "old" with respect to the current web technologies (because you can't update it unless you update the OS).

hg0428 (169)

Do we know the results for any of the sections?
I am going to try to learn some of all of the languages that one of the sections (and Basil too).

Zavexeon (1035)

I'm incredibly sad... I thought we had something special but it was just compared to JS and that was it...

DynamicSquid (3609)

@Zavexeon Which one was your language?

fuzzyastrocat (769)

@DynamicSquid You took my question :D
@Zavexeon I feel you... I put tons of work into Curta and the only comment is "An event driven lang for Arduino. Fairly simple compiler to C++." If I wasn't using it for projects of my own I'd feel like I just wasted a lot of time...

DynamicSquid (3609)

@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).

generationXcode (268)

@Zavexeon ur not alone. only i have lost every single jam ever. Ahh sadness so sad like a sad

aguy11 (119)

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.

aguy11 (119)

@DynamicSquid I meant like a rating on each of the categories, so maybe we would know where the weaknesses and the strengths were.

DynamicSquid (3609)

@aguy11 oh, I don't think they have those..

fuzzyastrocat (769)

@Coder100 Lol Cookeylang

Judges remarks:
No comments.

Curta got banged pretty bad as "a fairly simple compiler to C++". Lol it wasn't simple for me but I guess it is.

HahaYes (1221)

@fuzzyastrocat ye I feel like they could've given me more remarks, but I'm not going to feel bad after looking at some peeps projects that were pretty good and had no remarks.

fuzzyastrocat (769)

@HahaYes Agreed. I wish I had had more remarks, but I suppose it's ok since there's so many submissions (but still, there was plenty of time...)

HahaYes (1221)

@fuzzyastrocat hrmmm one month + one week uh 37 days about 80 qualifying submissions... so about 2 a day?

fuzzyastrocat (769)

@HahaYes Yeah... you would think you could probably go through (at least) 2 submissions in a day given there was a team of judges

HahaYes (1221)

@fuzzyastrocat but, at least I got sentences!

fuzzyastrocat (769)

@HahaYes Oh yeah, I guess I got 2 sentences...

fuzzyastrocat (769)

@HahaYes All hail the getter-of-three-sentences! :D

fuzzyastrocat (769)

@Coder100 @HahaYes was referring to the number of sentences they got in their judges comments.

generationXcode (268)

@Coder100 no comments for mine either :(

k9chelsea2 (651)

zala clearly superior idc what anyone says harumph harumph
