PL Jam has Ended
TheDrone7 (1777)

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.

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.

@HahaYes @AmazingMech2418 That would seem reasonable, obviously a quickly-made language won't be as polished as one that took a year
