When people think about cloud computing, they typically think about servers & back end development. This is starting to change. With the emergence of more & more powerful & sophisticated managed services like AWS AppSync, Cloudinary, Algolia, Auth0 & Firebase, it's completely possible for front-end engineers to build full-stack web & mobile applications with almost no back-end code, relying on these services to do the heavy lifting for features like data layers, search, authentication, authorization, & more. In this talk, I'll talk about this philosophy in depth, discuss the options available from different service providers, & then show how (live-code) to build a full-stack web application in just a few minutes by using React & AWS Amplify to quickly build a real-world application complete with a GraphQL API, authentication & authorization, & hosting.
