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 Functions are a serverless compute service in Microsoft Azure. You can use Azure Functions to deploy code without having to think about what servers the code will run on. Azure functions are well-suited for event-driven processing as you will see later in this lab. Functions also integrate with other Azure Services making monitoring and logging automatic.

This lab challenge assumes familiarity with the following concepts:

  • Understanding of Azure Function Apps
  • Understanding how to deploy Azure Functions and create a function app
  • Understanding how trigger and test function apps

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 Functions 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.
