A Summary of My Activities in the 5 Years Since Discovering AWS Amplify

Here is a summary of my activities in the 5 years since discovering AWS Amplify!

Published Jan 23, 2024

AWS Amplify Gen2 was recently announced. Although this is still a preview version, it was an important announcement that will have a significant impact on the future structure of Amplify. At this time, I decided to look back on my encounter with Amplify and my activities up to the present as a break of 5 years.

In 2018, I started looking for a way to implement login functionality on the front end. I also wanted to see if I could do something new by combining Geospatial and Serverless.
At the time, Amplify and Firebase were options, and I was researching and disseminating information about these services. In particular, I feel that the authentication feature is still widely used by many users even today.
When I implemented the authentication function in v0.4.8, there was a time when I had to configure Cognito directly in the management console, but now there are various tools available to make it easy to use Amplify.
Personally, I like Amplify Hosting and Amplify Geo!

I've been posting content about Amplify on my blog! So far, I have posted 38 articles on Amplify.

My articles about Amplify were posted on builders.flash, the official web magazine of AWS Japan!

I have given presentations on Amplify at various events!

I have contributed to OSS related to Amplify! I mainly contribute to Amplify Geo and docs. By continuing to contribute, you can get exclusive badges and SWAG.

I joined the Amplify Japan User Group as a steering member. I have been a member of FOSS4G (Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial) for 10 years, but this is my first time to be a member of the AWS community. My main contribution this year was the creation of T-shirts for the management. I hope to contribute again this year!
At the recent "Amplify Boost Up #04"
I reflected on my first encounter with AWS Amplify and its activities over the past 5 years.
I hope you are interested in Amplify after reading this article! Please try Amplify products! You are also welcome to attend our events!
