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

JavaScript is one of the most popular programming languages around. Your effort invested in learning JavaScript can take your career to many places. This lab challenge will help you confirm your knowledge in topics covered in the JavaScript for Beginners Path

In this lab challenge, you will be provided with a web browser-based integrated development environment (IDE) with incomplete code for a calculator app. Each step will add features to the app and must be completed before the time runs out.  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.
