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

YAML (Yet Another Markup Language) is a textual file format for serializing data. It is widely used for configuration files for applications, deployment platforms, and Continuous Integration and Deployment systems.

Being comfortable reading and writing YAML files will make you more effective when working with modern cloud-based systems.

This hands-on lab challenge will test your practical ability to use an integrated development environment (IDE) to create a database configuration YAML file.

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
