Drawing the Checkers Board
To draw the board you'll use a separate div element for each square. You'll need eight rows with eight div
elements each. Fortunately, this is pretty easy to do using a couple of nested for loops and the Razor syntax.
■ In Chapter 10 you drew a chess board using a canvas element. However, that won't work for this
application because you need separate DoM elements for each square. You might be tempted to use SVg to
create the board since each rect element is a separate DoM element, however, the SVg elements do not support
the DnD API.
