A New Tech

The FaaS Wars is a global serverless challenge that aims to promote the new tech within any developers' communities - Serverless Computing. The game’s concept is simple: you write code to control a robot (faasfighter) moving in a battlefield and firing lasers to battle another robot, built by other participants. The goal of the game is to defeat the "enemy" robot, hitting it 5 times, and of course, avoiding the lasers it will be firing at your robot. The time limit for each match is one minute. To create your first serverless functions (serverless robot) you should use the next generation Serverless Platform - Nimbella.
