What is Battlesnake?
What started as a small group of colleagues honing their skills has become BC’s largest programming competition. Last year over 600 people competed and watched in the Battlesnake arena. Battlesnake is for developers of all skill levels - from students to professionals.
The Battlesnake tournament is a multiplayer version of the classic arcade game, Snake. Teams have the day to program their AI Snake and in the evening, each competes against multiple teams per round, until just one snake is left slithering.
Battlesnake was created to bring developers together in a friendly, co-operative environment. Our goal is to showcase the technical talent and diversity in the Pacific Northwest while encouraging the next generation of developers and founders to continue growing our amazing community.
