BattleSnake is a programming competition held in Victoria, BC and organized by local startup¬†company, Sendwithus. The next one is scheduled for February 20th at¬†UVic’s ECS Building (1st Floor).

Teams of students and developers build web-based AIs for the classic arcade game “Snake”. Multiple teams will compete on the same board at the same time, and the winner will be the last team slithering!

There will be over $2,500 in prizes given away throughout the day, across two tournament brackets. The Classic Bracket will feature familiar gameplay mechanics and have a grand prize of $300. The new Advanced Bracket will offer new gameplay mechanics and a $1,000 grand prize.
