My name is Bill Forster, and I am a programmer living in Wellington, New Zealand. The Tarrasch Chess GUI is the result of me finally realising that it makes sense to combine my interests in chess and programming. I released the original Tarrasch Chess GUI (which I now call Tarrasch V1) in 2009. I started this blog in September 2010, soon after setting out on the big job of upgrading Tarrasch into a real chess GUI. These efforts (and this blog) eventually produced Tarrasch V2, released in September 2011. To download the Tarrasch Chess GUI, visit www.triplehappy.com.
I am now working on Tarrasch V3. To find out a little more background information, look at the first two posts on this blog,
