App development is an essential capability for your growing startup. To build an app that's robust, functional, and scalable takes the best of both front-end and back-end development. AWS offers tools to help you achieve both. This virtual, 3-day event serves as your introduction to best-practices for cloud-based app development. You'll hear customer highlights, and glean information from a lecture-based curriculum-all aimed at introducing you to technologies that expedite and simplify app production. You'll learn to develop and host full-stack applications using serverless technologies, containers, and we'll explore the intersection of mobile and cloud computing through presentations and interactive workshops.
