Backstory

I am the CTO of a software company that builds tools for food banks and other hunger relief organizations. I was introduced to BattleSnake through a post on the Canada.ai Slack. Seeing a competition that pits people to code against each other, that helps benefit Food Banks Canada? That's awesome. I grabbed some of my team and we started building a Snake in our spare time out of PHP scraps and gumption. It went... okay. Stay Home and Code (SHAC) came and went, and we... well, we participated. Since SHAC, I built a new snake framework in a different set of technologies (still PHP, just not the same bits of PHP.) It's smarter, and I've had a lot of fun with the Summer League challenges. But it's still not doing any ML/DL/RL of any kind. We're sticking to decision trees and A* algorithms along a graded map. It's put the snake in a higher tier, but not quite battling for supremacy with Pruzze yet.

  • Challenger OV-099

    Snake tweaked specifically to take on challenges.

    Private PHP Friendly Huggable AWS Latency

  • Darktooth

    Snake built with Swoole and PHP. Uses a graded map and the A* algorithm for pathfinding.

    Private Squads PHP Clueless AWS Latency

  • Dunkelzahn

    Second deployment of my primary snake. Designed to be second-fiddle in squad games.

    Private Squads PHP Classy AWS Latency

  • Link2Feed

    We made this in PHP in our spare time in the two weeks leading up to Stay Home and Code. It is 100% decision-tree based, and learns nothing. Dumb as rocks, and a little old school. Built in Amphp for the HTTP layer, because we felt Symfony was overkill for an API.
