ES NA Battlesnakes Deploy CodeQL

Battlesnakes created by a small team of GitHub Enterprise Support Engineers as a learning and team-building exercise.

Adding snakes

  1. Add snake directory within snakes
  2. Make new program config in supervisord.conf choosing a new port. Currently we have snakes in two languages (Ruby and Go)
    • Ruby snakes run on ports 4567+
    • Go snakes run on 8080+

Running snakes


  1. Run script/server to launch all snakes
  2. Make port public as needed to access from outside


  1. docker build -t battlesnake .
  2. docker run -p 4567:4567 -d battlesnake

Testing snakes

Beyond language and snake-specific testing, we also run simulated games to get quick feedback on how snakes are performing.
