SmallChess and it’s related apps are designed and developed by Ted Wong. Ted is a full-stack software engineer specialised in various areas, including but not limited to:

Are you curious how SmallChess looked like when it just started? It’s here. It worked but it wasn’t very good. It took me two years to reach a level that I was confident that it would work for everyone.
