🐍 Battlesnake: Learn, Build, Duel! 🐍

by Misha Hawthorn | at Minnebar 18 | 1:55 – 2:40 in Nokomis | View Schedule

I love Battlesnake! I was introduced to it a year ago at a convention and since then I've been telling everyone I know about it. You build and host a live web server, your Battlesnake, which responds to calls from a "game board" web server. It's a fun way for folks to engage in programming at a wide range of skill levels, in an entertaining arena with others!

In this workshop I'll provide an overview of how Battlesnake works and jump into a live workshop where you may create and take home your very own Battlesnake if you choose. For those who may have begun working on a Battlesnake or already have one we may be able to host some friendly competitions, but the focus will be collaborating and pairing to build and refine a Battlesnake. If you would like to participate please bring a laptop.
