What is AWS Amplify?

Amazon Web Services (AWS) Amplify is a software development product that allows front-end developers to build full-stack applications for web and mobile. It handles back-end development with no-code tools.Footnote 1 It works with iOS, Android, web, React Native, and Flutter apps and supports popular JavaScript frameworks.Footnote 2

With AWS Amplify, it’s possible to host static websites and web apps. When you host on the platform, you still have full control of the back-end. It also has a number of tools, including:Footnote 3

  • Open-source framework: This includes code libraries and user interface (UI) components that speed up the development process.

  • Visual development environment: With AWS Amplify Studio you can build your web or mobile application front-end and back-end in clicks.

  • Console: A command line interface (CLI) lets you write additional code to customize the project or add functionality.

AWS Amplify tutorial curriculum

In an AWS Amplify course, you may learn how to build different types of full-stack apps on the platform, from native to web. Introductory classes can focus on setting up a development environment with the required installations and account credentials.

An AWS Amplify tutorial may then delve deeper into the features Amplify Studio provides for visual development, exploring common object types like forms and page navigators. You may learn how to add functionality to your app, especially on the back-end, in order to handle availability, user interactions, and more. Advanced courses may teach you how to perform these actions within a JavaScript framework. 

Start building the knowledge you need to work in web development with edX. From accelerated boot camps to comprehensive programs that allow you to earn a bachelor’s degree or (for more advanced learners) a master’s degree, there are many different learning formats available to fit your needs. Busy professionals can even take advantage of executive education courses tailored to those in leadership and management positions. Find the right course for you.

  • Digital product designer: Focuses on a user’s experience with a digital product or service and comes up with ways to enhance it. Product design involves a series of stages that encompass planning, conceptualization, and development of new products or services.Footnote 6

In these positions, a solid grasp of web development technology is important. Enrolling in a coding boot camp could aid in the development of your technical knowledge and competencies, allowing you to maintain more control of your apps with custom lines of code. 

[H3]: How to use AWS Amplify in your career

Even if you’ve specialized as a front-end web developer, there’s still a chance for you to create a full-stack app if you use Amplify to handle the back-end. You can maintain your existing processes because Amplify works with many popular front-end development frameworks.Footnote 7 With the CLI, you can still write custom code for the elements you want to customize in more depth.

As a full-stack developer, you can use Amplify to speed up development. With your knowledge of what goes into development, a low-code environment may allow you to move faster than usual.Footnote 8 As your application scales, the Amplify back-end automatically generates deployment code and handles the business logic, alleviating concerns about losing control during the growth process.

As a digital product designer, you can use Studio to handle a large part of the front- and back-end development while you apply your UI/UX expertise. If the pre-built UI components don't work for you, you can make your own in Figma and export them as React code that you bring into Amplify.Footnote 9
