Wolfram Technology Conference 2011—October 19–21, 2011 | Wolfram Headquarters, Champaign, Illinois, USA

MATHEMATICA ONE-LINER COMPETITION

It's baaack! The One-Liner Competition at this year's Wolfram Technology Conference once again gave attendees the chance to show the world how much bang Mathematica can deliver per programming buck!

The challenge was to deliver the most impressive and surprising effects that can be achieved with 140 characters or less of Mathematica code. Outputs of all sorts were encouraged, from sound and graphics to math, text, and animations. Submissions were blind-judged by a panel of Wolfram Research employees, and prizes were awarded for first, second, and third place.

First-and-a-Half PlaceFirst-and-a-Half Place

One set of three excellent entries was submitted before the competition deadline, but did not arrive in the competition inbox until well after the deadline had passed. The judges considered those entries after the competition had completed and retroactively awarded them halfway between first and second place—first-and-a-half place.
