AWS CDK Construct Testing ChallengePush your skills to the next level in a live environment
- Stay within resource usage requirements.
- Do not engage in or encourage activity that is illegal.
- Do not engage in cryptocurrency mining.
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.
This hands-on IDE challenge assumes familiarity with performing the following actions within a TypeScript AWS CDK project:
- Writing CDK construct snapshot tests
- Writing CDK construct fine-grained assertion tests
- Writing CDK construct validation tests
If you are unfamiliar with any of the above, Cloud Academy recommends completing the courses and labs mentioned in the prerequisites before attempting this lab challenge.
This challenge will test your practical ability to work within a CDK project and utilize the built-in Jest framework tools to satisfy a set of requirements in a production-like AWS environment. You will receive a task and a 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.
What will be assessed
- AWS Cloud Development Kit (CDK)
- TypeScript Programming
- Cloud Architects
- Software Engineers
- DevOps Engineers
- Snapshot Testing AWS CDK Constructs
- Evaluating CDK Constructs with Fine-Grained Assertions and Validation Tests
