Lab description

AWS CloudFormation is an Infrastructure as Code (IaC) tool that allows for declaratively defined and easily repeatable deployments. Using AWS CloudFormation makes deployments quicker to develop and easier to work with, freeing up time to focus on other parts of your solution.

Modifying an AWS CloudFormation stack is a common task that people aiming to get AWS certified should be able to accomplish.

In this lab challenge, you will be tested on your practical ability to build out a solution in a production-like AWS environment. You are presented with a task and a set of requirements that you must fulfill to pass the challenge. This is a real environment, which means you can prove your knowledge in an applied situation, leaving behind multiple choice questions for a dynamic performance-based exam situation.
