Andrew Norris


Big news, DevCycle is growing! 

We are excited to announce that DevCycle has acquired Battlesnake, the team behind the popular developer gaming platform and community!

The acquisition is a massive step forward and a big win for all DevCycle users and the developer community as a whole. In joining forces, we open a wide array of possibilities for growth and innovation within both the DevCycle platform and the entire feature management industry. 

Battlesnake is an online platform currently being used by more than 10,000 developers worldwide to learn new coding skills in a competitive gaming environment. Thus, the Battlesnake team brings a wealth of knowledge and experience building authentic and creative developer communities. We’re so excited to welcome them to the team. 

Missions, aligned: 

Empowering the developers to do their best work is at the heart of both of our missions. Battlesnake’s mission states “To help every developer become a better developer,” and DevCycle’s mission is “To enable teams to build great software by creating tools developers are excited to use.” Together, our teams will curate meaningful developer communities and experiences that give dev teams the tools and resources they need to do their best work. 

These aligned mission statements will form the foundation of all that’s to come: from launching new and innovative features to releasing thoughtful content and tutorials, the developer experience will remain at the forefront of our platform and work.
