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 Simple Queue Service (Amazon SQS) is a fully managed message queue service from AWS. It allows you to decouple and scale different parts of your systems. It can be used to facilitate communication between microservices, distributed systems, and serverless applications.

Candidates for AWS certification should be able to create, configure, and troubleshoot Amazon SQS queues.

In this hands-on challenge lab, you will be given a scenario and a set of tasks to complete to meet the scenario's requirements.

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