GameDay is a simulation exercise that challenges your AWS skills to deploy, maintain, and scale an application in the face of changes and threats from both inside and outside your organization. Participants are handed live AWS and Datadog accounts, and can expect a fully hands-on and gamified experience based off real-world events.
You'll work as part of a new DevOps team at Unicorn.Rentals, the company that dominates the Legendary Animal Rental Market (LARM). To maintain Unicorn.Rentals' market dominance, you will be helping us grow and scale our systems. You'll need to manage unpredictable feature releases, changes to our microservices architecture, traffic fluctuations, new requirements, and much more. You and your team will earn points by keeping your application running, the requests flowing, and your customers happy.
GameDay is suitable for anyone with some AWS experience: Whether you're a developer, solutions architect, or a DevOps practitioner, there's something for everyone. It's open-ended, so you can solve problems in a variety of ways. You'll have to communicate well with your team, prioritize your actions, and execute your plans to win the day, and some special prizes.
