About lab assessment
Lab assessments are Hands-on labs with the gloves off. You jump into an auto-provisioned cloud environment and are given a goal to accomplish. No instructions, no hints. To pass, you'll have a limited time to demonstrate your problem-solving skills and get the checks that inspect the state of your lab environment.
Lab description

Demonstrate your knowledge of Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment by configuring a CICD pipeline using AWS Developer Tools in this hands-on lab assessment.

This hands-on lab assessment will test your practical ability to modify a solution in a production-like AWS environment. You will be presented with a task and set of requirements you must fulfill to pass the assessment.

You will be presented with a set of tasks organized into three increasingly difficult levels: Beginner (1), Intermediate (2), and Advanced (3).

This is a real environment, which means you can prove your knowledge in an applied way, substituting multiple-choice questions for a dynamic performance-based exam situation.
