Battlesnake Saskatchewan

Nov. 7, 2020 to Nov. 21, 2020

From November 7th - 21st compete in Battlesnake Saskatchewan! Choose your division, build your Battlesnake and 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!


The competition will be played across three divisions: Student, Rookie, and Veteran. Each division will have its own arena running games and ranking Battlesnakes. Arena's open on Nov 7th!

Student Division
For student developers who are new to Battlesnake and are looking for a fun way to practice their skills and put into practice some of the lessons they have learned.

Rookie Division
For developers who are new to Battlesnake and early in their career as a software developer. This division is a great place to get your feet wet, have fun, and maybe try some new technologies you have wanted an excuse to play with.

Veteran Division
For experienced developers looking for a more challenging competition. This Division is higher stakes with higher rewards.
