From September 25th-Oct 19 we will be running Battlesnake at WyoHack! Choose your division, build your Battlesnake and see if you can climb to the top of the leaderboard!
Battlesnake is a deceptively simple multi-player programming game for developers of all experience levels. Whether this is your first programming challenge or you are a seasoned professional, Battlesnake has a place for you to practice your skills and have fun throughout the competition.
Build and deploy a live web server that implements the Battlesnake API and plays the game on your behalf. You can use whatever languages and technologies you want!
Arenas
Starting September 25th, you'll be able to register your Battlesnake into the Arena in your division. Arenas run new games every few minutes and use TrueSkill to rank Battlesnakes. Use the Arenas to see how your Battlesnake is performing against the competition, refine your algorithm and climb the leaderboard!
