Building and Securing Serverless Apps using AWS Amplify (Part 1)
AWS Amplify is a set of tools that promises to make full-stack, cloud-native development quicker and easier. We’ve used it to build and deploy different products without getting bogged down by heavy infrastructure configuration. On one hand, Amplify gives you a rapid head start with services like Lambda functions, APIs, CI/CD pipelines, and CloudFormation/IaC templates. On the other hand, you don’t always know what it’s generating and how it’s securing your resources.
If you’re curious about rapid development tools that can get you started on the road to serverless but want to understand what’s being created, check out our series of videos.
We’ll take a front-end web app and incrementally build out authentication, API/function, and storage layers. Along the way, we’ll point out any gotchas or lessons learned from our experience.
