AWS Amplify is a relatively new product that combines hosting for frontend and backend code with a suite of additional services, features, and powerful integrations. You can build an entire web application without needing to spin up databases or set up authentication on your own.
Relevant to me
I've really been enjoying using Amplify. This whole site runs on it and I've done some further experiments with some of the backend features I mentioned above. This site is only using the frontend features of Amplify, but it means all my code is hosted out on the edge via AWS CloudFront.
Amplify also has a very nice integration with GitHub, which means it's very easy to set up automatic deploys. As soon as I merge my work into the main branch, the deployment starts happening.
