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.
Azure Bicep is an accessible and easier-to-understand templating language for deploying Azure resources compared to its counterpart, ARM templates.
This hands-on lab challenge will test your practical ability to convert an ARM template into an Azure Bicep template. You will be presented with a task and set of requirements you must fulfill to pass the challenge. You should be comfortable using the Azure CLI tools to deploy to an Azure environment.
You will be tasked with converting an ARM template to a Bicep template using the Azure CLI, thereafter deploying the template along with the given parameter file to Azure using the Azure CLI.
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.
