🍽 | Seasons Of Serverless

It's been just a week since we kicked off our #SeasonsOfServerless developer challenge series and we're psyched to see how much fun you are all having with this festive theme. Want to uncover the origin story and review the participation guidelines? Start with this post below!


🦃 | The Perfect Holiday Turkey

Last week, we launched our first challenge - created by our North American chefs just in time for the Thanksgiving holidays! The goal: Help chefs brine The Perfect Holiday Turkey

From the project brief

Convert this brine equation and cook time to an automated process so that when you input a turkey's weight, you will be given the amount of water, sugar, salt, and spices to add and a recommendation on how long to cook it ......

Our chefs recommend trying an Azure Function to generate your recipe ...


👨🏼‍🍳 | Our Chefs Weigh in!

Want to learn how our intrepid chefs solved this conundrum? First, check out their video walkthrough of their solutions right here!

Then dive into their code repos and explore the solutions on your own.

They used Python for their solutions - if you port this to a different language of your choosing, just leave us a comment and share your code! We'd love to see it! 🎉
