Tucano, or toucan in English, is the name of a colorful bird with an over sized bill, and is popular in Brazil.
I'm an IT professional with passion for chess and programming, so I combined both with the development of my own chess engine.
I've been working on this project for several years and I believe it is now in a stable state where I can release the engine and the source code under General Public License.
I used the information available on the internet, specially, many other open source engines, such as fruit, crafty, stockfish, rodent, olithink, sungorus, discocheck, exchess, faile, tscp, etc. Thanks to all developers that made this knowledge available.
The main source of information for development of chess engines is the Chess Programming Wiki (http://chessprogramming.wikispaces.com/).
There is an interesting Youtube channel where you can follow a series of videos about the development of a chess engine in C. You can find it at http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFkfibjxPzrP0e2WIa8aJCg (BlueFeverSoft).
In case of any question please send me an email (email@example.com) or stop by talkchess.com.
I hope you enjoy.
