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 less than one hour to demonstrate your problem-solving skills and get the checks that inspect the state of your lab environment.

Challenge Description

AWS is currently the leading cloud services provider, offering more than one hundred services tailored toward computing, storage, networking, artificial intelligence, and many more categories. Thousands of companies use AWS to host their cloud needs, and many of those companies use AWS's certification suite to ensure their staff is up to par when it comes to working with AWS resources. This lab challenge will help confirm your knowledge of the material presented in the AWS Solutions Architect - Associate certification learning path.

In this lab challenge, you will be provided with a real AWS environment. This environment will emulate a real-world scenario, where you will be asked to perform the kind of tasks commonly done by those with the AWS Solutions Architect - Associate certification. This lab challenge will avoid multiple choice answers in favor of real-world work in a cloud environment. Additionally, while this lab challenge will not cover every aspect of the certification requirements, completion of the challenge will go a long way toward showing you have a comprehensive grasp of architecting within AWS.

With this lab challenge, we are pushing you to the next level. Unlike our many other lab sessions, we are offering an advanced level environment where full and complete instructions will not be included to help you along the way. This means you will have to demonstrate your practical knowledge to the best of your abilities. You can check the status of your work by running checks that inspect the state of your lab environment.
