SizeCoding.org is a wiki dedicated to the art of creating very tiny programs for most popular types of CPUs. As sizecoding is also popular on other hardware, we recently opened the website for other platforms as well, check the links below.
By “very tiny programs”, we mean programs that are 256 bytes or less in size, typically created by members of the demoscene as a show of programming skill. The size of these tiny programs is measured by their total size in opcode bytes, and are usually presented as an executable binary.
Despite their tiny size, these programs are able to produce amazing graphical displays, playable games, and sometimes music. There are even some surprisingly effective programs in just 16 bytes  or even 8 bytes .
The intent of this wiki is to teach assembler programmers the various techniques used to create tiny demoscene intros. While these techniques can be used for other applications (boot sectors, ROM, BIOS and firmware code, etc.), the information presented here is firmly oriented towards the demoscene. Practicality and common sense are sometimes thrown out the window just to shave a single byte. Consider yourself warned….
