Building a Quick Serverless Game with MongoDB Atlas and Realm

Working with a fully remote team, it's been pretty hard to develop some sort of team camaraderie. While meeting in person was not possible for a while, we did the next best thing: play games with each other on a bi-weekly basis!

Cloud
Fun
Serverless

Our favorite games were always cloud-based and multi-player (so everyone could join), and involved either drawing or custom input from the players. Naturally, I wanted to see if I could build my own version of these "Jackbox"-style games!

In this session:

- We'll play the game! Audience participation highly encouraged!
- I'll deconstruct the architecture of the game, tying relevant game actions to their respective serverless components
- Explore the benefits and caveats of building games with a serverless architecture

By the end of this talk, the audience should be able to play the game, understand how each part works, and even be inspired to create their own!
