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 Lightsail provides pre-configured virtual private servers (VPS) that are backed by AWS infrastructure. Lightsail offers instances, containers, storage, databases, and networking all for a cost-effective monthly plan. This makes Amazon Lightsail a reliable option for simple, small-scale use cases.

Amazon Lightsail instances and container services can be configured within the easy-to-use Lightsail console. These resources can be provisioned using predefined blueprints, custom Docker container images, or Docker images hosted in public container registries like Docker Hub.

This hands-on lab challenge 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 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.
