What started as a small group of colleagues honing their skills has become a community of developers who compete for fun and for glory. Battlesnake grew from a single, yearly event into a global, open-source community that's active year-round. The game is a multiplayer version of the classic arcade game Snake, where teams program a snake AI to compete against others. The winner is the last snake slithering.
