In this lab, you will need to send a GET request to the /pentesterlab endpoint with a specific parameter. The key parameter should be set to the value please. This task can be initially approached using curl, a powerful command-line tool for making HTTP requests. After successfully completing the challenge with curl, you are encouraged to write a script in your favorite programming language to automate the task. This exercise will help you build a collection of reusable scripts for future use.

The provided video transcript demonstrates solving this challenge using Ruby and the HTTParty library. It guides you through setting up a Docker container with Ruby, installing the required dependencies, and writing the script to send the GET request. By following along, you can learn how to handle HTTP requests in Ruby and understand the benefits of using libraries like HTTParty for such tasks.
