I've given this post my performance optimization tag. Sometimes you want to optimize for programmer productivity, sometimes for execution speed, sometimes for space. Olivier Poudade, a fan of "sizecoding," has done that, building a chess-playing program that fits in 487 bytes, as Leo Kelion reports. In other words, Poudade's BootChess, after assembly, takes up less memory than the markup for post you just read.
