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 Static Web (SWA) is a free web host that allows you to host static websites easily. SWA enables you to build static websites without additional configuration or host management. Azure links directly with GitHub or Azure DevOps to monitor and deploy changes to production env. The static file serving enables SWA to deliver files much faster to end users.

Many companies today use cloud infrastructure to quickly and easily deploy new applications to scale their business. To avoid complications of hosting and managing, static site hosting offers an easy and reliable solution. It enables organizations to offload the host management while also taking advantage of native integration with Azure services.

This lab challenge assumes familiarity with the following concepts:

  • Understanding of Azure Web Apps and Azure Static WebApps
  • Understanding how to create Azure Static Webapp instance and publish an app using SWA CLI

If you are unfamiliar with any of the above, Cloud Academy recommends completing the labs mentioned in the prerequisites before attempting this lab challenge.

This hands-on lab challenge will test your practical ability to interact with the Azure Static Web app to satisfy a set of requirements in a production-like Azure 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.
