Hey there! Thanks for checking the project out. We have a bunch of starter snakes written in various languages you can get started with, and if you go to play.battlesnake.io you can start developing against the API and then run games there.
Unfortunately we haven't worked out a great way for remote participants, however if you want to run your own event, let us know and we can help out there.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
