No-Code Mobile & Web App Development With Amazon Honeycode

Today’s customers have a growing need for automation that helps them track data over time, manage workflows involving multiple people and facilitate complex business processes. Many teams use packaged applications like spreadsheets and emails to manage their work, but these tools make it hard to keep data in sync, lack individually personalized experiences, require too much manual effort and don’t work effectively on mobile devices.

Introducing Amazon Honeycode. It enables you to build an app to achieve your goals - with NO programming required. Honeycode makes it possible for customers to build powerful web and mobile applications without writing any code using a combination of spreadsheets and a visual application builder. Join this session to learn more about the world of No-Code development and how you can build a custom app that will help you and your team to be more productive.

Amazon Elastic Containers Services (Amazon ECS) makes it easy to orchestrate containers to run most sensitive and mission critical applications because of its security, reliability and scalability.
During this session, we will demonstrate how you can deploy your unique applications and microservices using Amazon ECS and Amazon ECR (Elastic Containers Repository).

Microservice architecture makes it possible to roll out rapid changes by keeping disruption to a minimum with the help of container orchestration platforms like kubernetes and Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service(EKS) is a managed Kubernetes Service which takes care of undifferentiated yet all important “Heavy Lifting” and lets you focus on your customer priorities.

In this talk, we demonstrate how you can use EKS to scale your application deployments automatically.
