Problem Statement

The Startup Skillbook is growing! Let’s help ‘em get the clouds.

The Skillbook is a website where people are able to create profiles to share their skills. The website is going very well and the community is growing.

The problem is the website running on a local server and not good enough to keep fast response in rush hours (server high traffic).

They need us to help with help to move from local server to Azure cloud server and use Azure tools to Scalability, Deploy and Testing. They challenged us with their three problems to solve (Easy, Medium, Hard).

It is time to showcase your Azure Skills at Topcoder! These competitions are just the right place for you.

Technology Stack

  • Azure
  • Github
  • Wordpress


  • We have prepared three problems: Easy, Medium, and Hard, which are worth 250, 500, 1000 points respectively. Points are based on the difficulty of the problem.
  • The competitions may or may not be related to each other.
  • The links to the problems/competitions are provided below.
  • Each problem has one single requirement to achieve. We will judge your submission based on the requirement being fulfilled in each problem, so as long as the requirements are met with minimal code quality, you would be rewarded with points for that particular problem.
