Inspiration

War Snake was inspired by the thrill of combat, and the thrill of running a web server ;-)

What it does

It uses the A* search algorithm to navigate around the board.

How I built it

War Snake is built in Python, and deployed as a Docker container to an AWS Elastic Beanstalk. Travis CI is used to automatically and continuously deploy War Snake to the AWS environment.

Challenges I ran into

Debugging was difficult until I admitted I wasn't getting anywhere and just used Postman.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

I'm proud that this only took me about 4 hours.

What I learned

I learned a little bit about A* search in practice, and I learned some more about continuous deployment and AWS.

What's next for War Snake

It will likely be laid to rest (honorably) once the hackathon is over, since I am a student and I can only bum free servers off of AWS for so long.
