Google CloudEasy as Pie Serverless Hackathon

A virtual hackathon to build and deploy
serverless apps with Cloud Run, Cloud Functions and Workflows

Registration Open!
Submission Deadline: February 4, 2022

The Hackathon

In this hackathon, you’ll use Google Cloud’s Serverless products to build something creative, fun, and valuable.
Be ambitious.

We’re excited to see what you build and think you’ll be pleasantly surprised how rapidly your team will be able to build scalable, production quality software at lightning speed with Google Cloud.

Your objective is to build something you can demo. To accelerate your work and uplevel your skills, we’ll teach you how to deploy runnable code with Cloud Functions, containers with Cloud Run and combine services with Workflows.

We are hosting this hackathon to give you the access, tools and resources needed to bake your own serverless applications and deploy cloud apps without the expensive cost, complicated configurations or time consuming aspect of a non-serverless world. 

Google’s developer tools will be with you along the way. Use Client Libraries to connect to Google’s APIs with minimal code, deploy using Cloud SDK CLI, and edit your code through the Cloud Code in-browser IDE.

  By participating in this hackathon event you will:

  • Get exclusive early access to Cloud Functions (2nd gen)
  • Understand the benefits of serverless solutions using Google Cloud tools like Cloud Run, Cloud Functions and Workflows and how the methods you employ today can be elevated to more agile, responsive and more cost-effective solutions.  
  • Have access to the Google Cloud training and platform tools where you can expand your capabilities and re-tool your essential software and hardware needs into a more productive environment.

  Submission requirements for judging:

  • Create a team project page on the hackathon platform that details your solution and lists your teammates and captures your project assets
  • Incorporate at least one product of Google Cloud serverless technology
  • One slide presentation outlining details of your solution (an unrestricted link or pdf attachment)
  • 3-5 minute video detailing your use case along with your implementation
  • To be judged, your project must deploy and run

Challenges

Hackathon Challenge #1: Baking a new data recipe

Bring one of your most sticky, time consuming, budget-draining, energy-sucking business functions and recreate them with the Google Cloud ingredients Cloud Run, Cloud Functions and Workflows into a new recipe. 

Hackathon Challenge #2: Mixing it up

Bring in your current builds - AI applications, ML models, chat bots/tools, or workflow automations - and reimagine them in a new way by using Google Cloud Run, Cloud Functions or Workflows. Here’s an opportunity to take one of your existing apps, concepts or deployments and retool it using Cloud Run, Cloud Functions and/or Workflows. 

Hackathon Challenge #3: Wildcard Leftovers

Do you have a solution that encompasses more than one of the challenges above? Do you have an idea that is completely out of the box, but still addresses the theme at hand? If so, the Wildcard challenge is for you! Use Cloud Run, Cloud Functions or Workflows with your own technology to create a unique and useful solution for corporations or every day coders and programmers.
