This is the true story of a backend engineer diving into AWS Amplify with a frontend first mindset. Amplify is the new kid on the AWS cloud block. Its usage has trippled over the past year. And if you ask me, that is only the beginning!
In this developer-oriented talk I lead you into the wonderous world that Amplify can open for you. I’m taking you on the journey of building a full-stack app. No, not your simple todo-app, I did build a whole startup on top of this platform, you know? Together we’ll learn how to build an application that has all the characteristics of a production-ready app. Going from implementing authentication with different levels, over using Storage to (not) share data, leveraging the power of graphql Appsync APIs, adding analytics, hosting, and functions.
Of course, what is shown will be open source and available afterwards. There are four pillars that form the foundation of this talk:
- The speed you get from leveraging the serverless mindset
- The quality you get from using proven technologies
- The great community behind the Amplify framework
- The challenges to conquer
Embark on this journey with me and sail the Amplify ship!
