Long Live MicroPython TI Calculators!
I received a TI83 CE With Python programming yesterdayand the TI84 with Python today! I bought both from Amazon (usa and germany) and both came from Europe(i think both from Germany). The TI83 has a French keyboard. I read French so there is no problem. I didi set the display to English. I wrote my first Newton root seeking program in MicroPython and it feels wonderful! I was able to program it without looking at a manual!

Hi Namir,
That’s great news! Would you know if mpmath, a somewhat popular (included in Sympy), arbitrary precision Python library that is written completely in Python, can be used in microPython? Thanks! Carey

RE: Long Live MicroPython TI Calculators!
I'll probably pick up a TI84 CE Python Edition when they come out in the US this fall. As lacking as I find the 84 CE in many respects (no binary/hex, no builtin unit conversions like Casio, slow), TIBasic is very nice to program in, and the builtin realtime clock is very handy for data collection. Adding Python to the mix will just increase its usefulness even more.

RE: Long Live MicroPython TI Calculators!
I've been enjoying the Python on my Nspire CX II CAS. Within a week, I had written a pretty complete Connect 4 game on it (with the calculator doing a decent job of playing second player). Granted, I do program computers for a living, though the Nspire was my first use of Python.

RE: Long Live MicroPython TI Calculators!
Hi, Namir! I have been a fan of TI calculators for over 35 years. Long live TI! But I can`t understand why the Pithon programming language attracts calculator lovers so much. Now, for 26 years, I have been regularly served by TI85 with its excellent programming language and many mathematical features. I also have a wonderful TI83+SE with BatLib from Zeda (Elnara) Thomas, CASIO 9860gii2 with C.BASIC from Sentaro21. I still can`t understand why an engineer and mathematician need Pithon? Isn`t the HPPrime or fx9860gii (for general engineers and advanced students) enough? I`ve never seen an engineering calculation in my life that the HP50g, HPPrime, or fx9869gii2 couldn`t handle.

The TI84 Plus CE Python is added to the list of calculators to purchase, preferably either in a Mint Green, Purple, or Blue case. The coral red looks interesting too. I did buy a French calculator recently: TI82 Advanced (prePython)

There's a huge base of Python programs available for download. The number of programs written for any particular calculator is considerably less. Plus, with Python, you don't have to start from scratch if you switch calculators in the future. Tom L Cui bono?
