  3. Fill in the details and submit!

We'll review submissions on a rolling basis, to verify that the submitted hacks are complete. Accepted submissions will be added to the ๐Ÿ† Hall Of Fame here as a permanent record of your accomplishment!

You can submit multiple entries - but each must be associated with a unique GitHub repo and showcase something new or different you did beyond the default. Read on for examples of how you can Extend the Hack.

She will host weekly office hours where they discuss Serverless topics, take questions and provide guidance to help you walk through the mini-challenges in this year's What The Hack: Serverless Challenge described below. Plus, she'll share her own solution in a series of video walkthroughs that can guide you in your own challenge journey!

๐ŸŽฏ Complete Hacksโ€‹

Your challenge this year comes from What The Hack, part of a collection of challenge-based hackathons that you can complete - or in a team of 3-5 people as a collaborative learning experience in-person or online. The goal is to learn from each other and share your insights with the broader community in a way that helps you build and retain expertise, while also contributing back.

The figure above shows the specific challenge you will work on: Azure Serverless in the category of Application Modernization. In this challenge, you will build a Tollbooth application using a serverless architecture involving multiple Azure services.

Don't forget to join the weekly office hour sessions if you have questions or need help. And make sure you submit your solution to our Hall Of Fame when you are done!


Here's a handy link to the file that is mentioned in the Serverless Hacks walkthrough.

๐Ÿ’ก Extend Hacksโ€‹

The 8-challenge hack provides the default path for working on a solution. But you have options to go beyond this, or do something new or different!

  • Check out the Optional Challenges identified in the Hack page.
  • Implement your solution in different languages (Java, JS, C#/.NET, Python)
  • Extend the scenario to add another Azure Service (e.g., Azure Container Apps)
  • Explore new developer tools or workflows (e.g., Azure Developer CLI)

๐Ÿ† Hall Of Fameโ€‹
