Lab 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.
