Well, I will definitely never write a chess engine (too old and programming inexperienced for such an endeavor), but for the sake of the future of free source chess engines I wish you guys the best on this task. Additionally I will post links to this forum every time somebody asks.

Best regards and wishes,

Many thanks matematiko for your support, and by the way your contribution to this forum is very much appreciated.

And yes, "advertising" for these lessons in many places is part of the plan :)

Hi Vladimir :)

I have just added you to the Teachers group, you should now be able to see a new subforum called Teachers Workshop.

My best wishes to all team members for this great project! :)

I'll follow the lessons and maybe I'll eventually be able to build an engine...

Nice to see there is some interest on the project :)

The team is working at the moment on a general schedule for the lessons, so it will probably take a few days before the first lesson is available.

When this is done, we are going to make some advertising on chess related and programming related forums, in order to have more students.

Well - here's a 'student'!

However - from what I've seen - it looks like it will cost - which puts me off it.

Also - what language will this be in - I'm attempting to learn C++.

Hi,
as far as I'm aware it won't cost you money.

The programming language used to explain the concepts is C. But as concepts are teached rather than just posting code it shouldn't matter that much anyway.

Hi Matthew, you are welcome :)

The lessons are absolutely free, of course.

Dear Team,

it would be great to know the format in wich the lessons will be created (and where).
Will it be Wiki-alike? Will it be possible to discuss about the lessons (as e.g.
Wikipedia has a discussion page?).

I am asking because I will surely have lots of questions!
(Despite Gernd brilliant Web-Pages / Wiki ;-)

I would start in parallel with your lessons using the D programming language.

Best Regards
Stefan Edlich

Hi Stefan

The lessons are meant to be posted on this forum, and indeed the students will be able to ask questions and discuss every topic with the teachers and among themselves.

It is summer though, and the Team has better things to do at the moment :wink: We'll see if they are eager to resume brainstorming in September.

What a great service. Thanks.

Don't forget a Donate Button!

Best
Stefan
P.S.: Maybe there will be personal trainers for chessprogramming in the
future (like in sports ;) I should ask my friend Sven Schüle on this...
