Hands-On Lab

In this hands-on lab, we will create a DynamoDB table to store pet inventory data. In the scenario, the data architect on the team has requested a table definition with a partition key of pet_species with the data type String, a sort key of pet_id with the data type Number, and that the table be named PetInventory. Because the workload in development is not known, On-Demand provisioning should be utilized. We're free to create the table with any method we choose (web console, CLI/SDK, CloudFormation).

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
