What is Battlesnake?
Battlesnake is a game played by developers all around the world. Program a web server to play the game, compete online, and collaborate with other developers. It's really simple to get started and deceptively difficult to perfect.
Why are we doing this?
The COVID-19 crisis in Canada has forced everyone into new realities and routines. Far beyond remote work and stay-at-home fatigue, there are many Canadians whose basic daily needs are not being met. A staggering 4.4M Canadians do not have access to the food required for essential dietary needs. Organizations tasked with combating food insecurity in Canada are already strained, and demand on those systems has grown immensely during this crisis.
It's important to us that we, and the broader tech community, recognize our opportunities to support all Canadians through these times. For Battlesnake, that means pulling our community together and rallying behind organizations that are operating on the frontlines. We are proud to partner with Food Banks Canada in this effort and thankful for the opportunity to help in whatever ways we can.
