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

In this lab challenge, you will need to prove your general knowledge of content related to the AZ-303 certification. You'll be given a desired end state and be required to reach it using your knowledge of Microsoft Azure and relevant tools. While this lab challenge won't cover every topic needed to pass the AZ-303 exam it will be a good first step toward determining whether you're on the right path. The lab challenge simulates building a basic solution in a real-world scenario. As with any real-world scenario, this lab will not guide you through the steps needed to complete it.
