Byte-le Royale is a 24 hour programming competition where competitors in teams of up to 3 write an AI to play a video game. The teams will be competing against each other to see who can create the best AI!


Saturday, February 10th at 12:00 PM to Sunday, February 11th at 2:00 PM


Quentin Burdick Building Room 104


Lead your fearless adventurers into the depths of the earth with the magical language of Python. Gather gold, fame, and glory to become the envy of your fellow competitors.

Once the event starts, you will have 24 hours to build the best team. Never forget though, sleep is essential to successful adventuring. Get plenty of sleep!

Controlling your adventurers will be as simple as using a basic Python API, which will command your units to take various actions.

Once the event starts, a link will be added here that will allow competitors to access the documentation for the game and its API.

RSVP and Food Tickets


In order to better judge how many people will be attending, we would like to encourage everyone who plans on attending to RSVP. Attendence of the event is 100% free. We will, however, be offering a food ticket package. Additionally, to save time, you can RSVP up to three people (the max number of people in a team) at one time.

Food Tickets

At the event from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM on Saturday, we will be selling $10 food ticket packages. This food ticket package will include 3 food tickets redeemable for the two meals listed on the schedule, as well as a goody bag that may consist of: Chips/Crackers, Candy bars, Cans of Pop, Cookies. All perfect things to keep your blood-sugar levels high, and keep you pumped up.

Our intent is not to make a profit, so all profits from the food ticket sales will be used for filling up those goody-bags and purchasing meals.
