🍽 | Seasons Of Serverless

We are now entering WEEK 4 of #SeasonsOfServerless developer challenge series!! It's never too late to join in and learn about festive traditions around the world - and explore a bit of code in the process!

Want to learn more about what #SeasonsOfServerless is and how you can participate? Start by reading this post:


🇹🇷 | The 'Longest Kebab' Challenge!

Our chef last week was Microsoft Student Ambassador Baris Ceviz, who shared a popular tradition from the 'Adana kebabi' festival in Turkey with Cloud Advocates Chloe Condon and Cecil Phillip.

From the project brief

The most common problem in this festival is calculating how much material is needed to create the longest possible kebab based on the amount of material you have on hand. Since there are so many people at the festival, and you'd like to serve them all, the materials must be calculated quickly.

You need to produce a fast serverless solution to this problem. Create a kebab calculator that, given a certain amount of meat in kilos, can calculate how many people you'll be able to feed as well as how long your kebab can be!


👨🏼‍🍳 | Our Chefs Weigh in!
