How do you learn new skills? Do you read manuals? Watch videos? Listen to experts? Do you learn best by spending time in a “sandbox”? Or do you prefer getting tossed into the deep end with no floats?
At Qwiklabs, we are passionate about hands-on learning. And we have something new for those of you who learn best jumping into the deep water of AWS environment setup and troubleshooting: the Challenge Lab.
A secure cloud environment is critical to doing business today. Prepare yourself (and your resume) to take on the security dragon with the newest Qwiklabs Quest: Security on AWS. Click here to enroll.
In this Quest, you will start by learning the basics of IAM and security-related tools like VPCs and the AWS Web Application Firewall (WAF). Then you’ll level-up to more advanced tools and use cases. This Quest is a great way to study up for the AWS Certified Security – Specialty exam (more on that tomorrow).
There are a total of six new labs in this Quest. If you’re an Advantage Subscriber, you already have unlimited access to the new labs (smart move!). If you’re not a subscriber, now might be a good time to consider signing up.
Here’s all the new stuff (the Quest costs a total of 69 credits, or save with a US $55 subscription):
qwikLABS has a new look. Click here to check it out! You’ll notice a few new features that we think you’ll like (whether you do or not, we’d love to hear about it). Most of the changes are small, but we hope they will AWSome-ize your lab experience.
Here are some of the changes you should know about:
1. Voice design is today’s Jedi mind trick.
2. Vader wants a free t-shirt. It matches the rest of his wardrobe.
3. So his Echo can answer him when he asks “Alexa, where is the Rebel Alliance base?” Hint: Not Alderaan. (Too soon?)
