Lately I’ve been amusing myself in my spare time by learning how to make a chess engine. I don’t want anyone to think that I came up with this on my own, I’m taking a tutorial through Youtube videos by a man called Logic Crazy. Be sure to check out the link for his tutorial, I’ve found it to be fun and informative!
Logic Crazy seems to have a website with several other variants of chess engines, as well as engines for a couple of different games. And that is also worthy of a good long look. For myself, I’m just trying to learn the basics of Java programming.
Logic Crazy’s design is for an actual Java program to be run on your computer. I on the other hand, am adapting it for an app to be used on an Android phone, which I’m hoping will be fun, but also a great learning experience. My free time is a little bit limited these days, but hopefully you’ll be seeing more posts about it soon.
Linux – keep it simple.
