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

Azure Pipelines lets you automate builds and deployments to many locations, including the cloud.

This hands-on lab challenge will test your practical ability to implement continuous integration using Azure DevOps and an IDE. You will be presented with a task and set of requirements you must fulfill to pass the challenge. You should be comfortable using an IDE environment similar to VS Code and using the terminal. You will be tasked with creating a build pipeline using Azure Pipelines, testing the pipeline, and finally implementing continuous integration with a pull request trigger.

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.

It is strongly recommended to complete the prerequisite labs before performing the challenge:
