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

AWS CodeDeploy is a service from Amazon Web Services that enables you to automate application deployments to:

  • Amazon EC2 instances
  • On-premise servers
  • AWS Lambda functions
  • Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS)

AWS CodeDeploy, combined with AWS CodePipeline, makes it easier for you to manage your deployments and perform sophisticated deployment strategies such as Canary or Blue/Green deployments.

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.

What will be assessed

  • AWS CodeDeploy
  • AWS CodePipeline
  • Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS)
  • Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3)

Intended audience

  • Candidates for the AWS Certified Developer Associate certification
  • DevOps Engineers
  • Software Engineers


  • Continuous Integration and Deployment with AWS Code Services
  • Implementing GitOps for Kubernetes in AWS
