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.
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.
Note: For the lab validation system to function properly, the steps and checks need to be done in order as stated by the instructions.
