Project: Chess Apps
About: I believe that it is easier to learn a new skill if you are creating things around something you really enjoy. When I first started creating apps I used chess as my experimental playground. I started out by creating a simple chess clock. Then I created apps that replayed the games of grandmasters. I moved on to create apps that let you solve chess puzzles. I even created an app called Eugene that is a pretty tough computer opponent. I attribute my ability to create apps to the fun hours spent figuring things out with these chess apps.
