Get Involved

Whether you are a programming wizard or just a fan, there’s something you can do to help make Stockfish even better.


Fishtest lets you volunteer your computer’s processing power to help test future versions of Stockfish. No coding required! All you need to do is install the Fishtest worker, and your computer will automatically start playing chess games using future and current versions of the engine.

Write Code

Do you have a great idea that could improve Stockfish’s playing strength? Fork the project on GitHub and commit away. Then use Fishtest to test your change.
