#SeasonsOfServerless 

 

An Azure Advocates Festive Developer Challenge!

The Azure Advocates have teamed up with Microsoft Student Ambassadors around the world for a new multi-week series of developer challenges – just in time for the festive holiday season!!! Join us as we travel the globe in search of popular festive recipes for our virtual potluck – and find intriguing ways to tackle each chef’s challenges with our time-tested serverless recipes! 

 

 

WHAT IS THE CHALLENGE ABOUT? 


Origin Story:

Mes chers amis,

Every year, we all look forward to our annual holiday potluck. From jollof rice all across West Africa to Indian ladoos to celebrate Diwali, sharing our favorite foods and traditions is our favorite part of the season!

Of course, we know that's not possible this year, so we've come up with an alternative: a virtual code challenge potluck! Each week, someone in our community is going to post a unique code challenge exploring a recipe and a food for all of our friends to solve. It may not be the same as breaking bread in-person or smelling and tasting your flavorful creations, but hopefully these delectable brain-teasers can still give us a taste of each other's traditions.

Grosses bises, Dominique et Simone

 

The Mission:
Our intrepid chefs (and challenge creators) quickly realized that making these dishes requires a little help – and they think serverless fits the bill quite nicely!

#SeasonsOfServerless follows on the footsteps of last year's popular #25DaysOfServerless challenge. This year, we wanted to give you more time to enjoy each challenge so we spaced them out - a challenge a week starting November end, and going through the holidays into the new year!

 

And our first challenge is already out! Hear all about it from the amazing Student Ambassadors and Cloud Advocates who .. ahem .. cooked it up!

 

 

 

HOW CAN YOU PARTICIPATE? 

  

 

WHY ARE WE DOING THIS? 

#SeasonsOfServerless follows in the footsteps of our 2019 #25DaysOfServerless challenge. We realized that developers not only enjoyed solving the code puzzles, but they also loved learning about festive customs and cultures around the world. However, the challenge-a-day pace is not holiday-friendly. So, this year we’re spacing them out a little more – with one challenge a week starting Nov 23 and continuing into the New Year!  


Let’s Do This!! :flexed_biceps:
