Serverless backend

If your app has dynamic content, AWS Amplify is a great service that provides backend-as-a-service. Meaning it'll take a short time to set up your APIs, data tables, authentication (login), cloud functions, and connect to any AWS service.


When you are ready to go live with your app, you will need to host your code so users can access it. And, to connect a domain. AWS Amplify also covers hosting.
