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 Lambda is a serverless compute service that allows you to run your code in a scalable manner while only paying for the compute used to run your function. It's a flexible service that can be used in a wide range of use cases.

Learning how to deploy an AWS Lambda function into a VPC will make you more effective at building secure and sophisticated infrastructure deployments in the public AWS cloud.

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.
