How to Start Your First Computer Chess Program

Under Construction: lots of work to do here

We are in the process of creating two equally strength very very beginner programs. The programs will not have much in them but they will play a legal match and interface with winboard. One program will be based on simplistic data structures and written in C. The other will be based on bitboards and written in C++.

We thank James Swafford for providing the alpha version of his program Prophet for this.
