The λ# Hackathon is part workshop, part challenge, part competition, and always a rush!
This is a hands-on event suitable for passionate beginners, advanced developers, and curious minds alike. Each hackathon is focused on exploring a serverless technology by building a solution with it. Participants are split into random teams of 2 to 4 members to collaborate on the challenge.
In this challenge, we'll build a serverless bookmarking app that uses API Gateway, DynamoDB, and stream processing with Lambda functions. This application will be expanded to be able to shorten URLs, create previews, and classify contents of webpages.
BRING YOUR LAPTOP!
Be prepared and make sure you have the following applications installed on your computer:
1. .NET Core 2.0 (or any AWS Lambda compatible language)
2. A valid AWS Account
3. Setup the AWS CLI and account profile
HOW TO GET THERE!
The MindTouch office is located on Broadway, between Front and First Street. There are nearby trolley and bus stations. If you come by car, you can park on the street or pay for parking in the underground garage.
WHAT TO EXPECT!
This is a hands-on event suitable for advanced developers, passionate beginners, and curious minds! Each meeting is focused on exploring a serverless technology by building a service with it. Participants are split into random teams of 3 to 4 to collaborate on a solution. We believe that team collaboration is the most fun way to make new discoveries, master new technologies and make new friends!
Mentors are available to answer questions and guide each group to a solution. This is a great event to meet experienced engineers, build cutting edge services, and mingle with like-minded technologists who are passionate about serverless architecture!
