About Lab Challenges

Lab challenges 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.

Challenge Description

Amazon API Gateway is a service you can use to host a web-based application programming interface (API). It's fully-managed, meaning you don't need to deal with provisioning or configuring servers. Amazon API Gateway is also cost-effective, you only pay for the API calls you receive and the bandwidth charges associated with data transferred out of AWS.

By learning how to use Amazon API Gateway, you will become more effective at developing web based systems in the public AWS cloud.

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

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.
