I'm creating a simple challenge here as a first test of the community's reactions. Please let me know if this challenge is the kind of thing you guys like or what I can improve... :)
The task is this: Render a chess board in Lua in smallest code possible.
Here is an example solution: http://tinybrain.de/145
As you can see, there is definitely room for getting smaller than 657 bytes (# of bytes are printed on the page). All the information you need for coding should be on the page or, hopefully, on tinybrain.de. Mailed questions totally welcome too. Lua API overview: http://tinybrain.de:8080/tb/debug.php?cmd=144
I am not demanding your chess board to have the exact same colors or even the same size. It should look like a chess board, that's all.
You need to register on TinyBrain.de to submit and test code. (Sorry, hope that is OK... It's free and I'm not a data peddler, so no harm there... :)
Edit: For testing your code locally (without any registration or Internet connection), you can download the TinyBrain runtime (magic.jar). Here is the link: http://tinybrain.de:8080/magic.jar
