This week’s Tech Spotlight is AWS Amplify. AWS Amplify is an end-to-end solution that enables mobile and front-end web developers to build and deploy secure, scalable full stack applications, powered by AWS. Amplify includes an open-source framework with a CLI toolchain and libraries to help you configure app backends quickly and connect them to your app in just a few lines of code. Amplify also includes a web hosting service to deploy static web applications from the AWS console in three steps.
Front-end web and mobile developers appreciate Amplify’s deep integration with popular front-end web frameworks and mobile platforms such as React, Flutter, Android, and iOS, and its simple use case-based approach to AWS backend configuration. Amplify libraries allow developers to release features using authentication, storage, data or analytics, and hit deadlines. With CLI commands like “amplify add auth” you can build your app without prior knowledge of the underlying AWS services. Amplify can also be a great tool for challenges like building a TikTok clone in 24 hours.
If you are a a front-end web or mobile developer, join our AWS Amplify community on Discord to hang out with 3,840 other members or attend our ‘Amplify with Friends’ Twitch series, hosted every other Wednesday through early November. You can watch our most recent episode and sign up for upcoming sessions here!
A small group of community members from across the globe thought this was something worth celebrating so we are going to take one day and showcase the brightest and best of cdk from across the whole product family. During the day we plan to mix introduction talks with hands on builders sessions so that everyone can leave having learned something new.
