Join us March 15th for the largest Battlesnake event yet!
What is it?
Battlesnake Victoria 2020 is a one-day programming competition where participants write software to compete in Battlesnake, a multiplayer version of the classic arcade game Snake. Now in our sixth year, Battlesnake is the largest programming competition in BC and is presented in partnership with AWS, GitHub, and Dyspatch. With over $10,000 in prizes and 20 participating companies, it is going to be an amazing day of programming and entertainment!
Who is it for?
Battlesnake is for everyone. It’s an exciting and educational competition that attracts developers of all skill levels, from novice to expert. But Battlesnake is for you even if you’re not a developer — it’s also for anyone interested in programming, anyone with kids interested in programming, and anyone looking to support the tech community.
Why should I attend?
Whether you’re a seasoned programmer with years of experience, or a high school student new to the game, Battlesnake is the perfect environment to hone your skills and learn new technologies. You’ll be inspired by your fellow competitors to try new things and push yourself just a little further. You’ll also have the chance to meet potential future employers. And even if you’ve never programmed before and aren’t sure you ever want to learn, Battlesnake is fun to watch!
