This post recaps some of the C64 coding tricks used in my little Commodore 64 coding competition. The competition rules were simple: make a C64 executable (PRG) that draws two lines to form the below image. The objective was to do this in as few bytes as possible.
These people are wizards.
These are fun little programming challenges, although too arbitrary for my taste. I’m a bigger fan of things like “Crobots” where the objective is somewhat more meaningful with more room to be creative.
Takes me back to my roots!
I know it seems arbitrary, but the skills learnt doing stuff like that has left me writing better more compact IoT code than I otherwise might have!
