Donatas Lapienis [1]

an UCI compliant, experimental open source chess engine by Michael Dvorkin, written in the Go programming language, freely distributable under the terms of MIT license and first released in December 2014.


Donna is dedicated to Lithuanian chess grandmaster Donatas Lapienis (April 8, 1936, Kaunas - April 10, 2014, Vilnius [2] ), who was Michael Dvorkin's chess teacher. In the mid 80s, Donatas Lapienis was highest ranked correspondence chess player in the world with an Elo rating of 2715 [3] .


Michael Dvorkin thanks his friend chess grandmaster Eduardas Rozentalis, who inspired him to write a chess engine. Donna would never have been possible without the open source authors of their respective engines [4] :
