What I learn from Introduction to AWS PartyRock

Here I detail my experience in taking a course in AWS Educate and learning something new

Published Jun 8, 2024
After testing services like Amazon Q and Amazon Bedrock, I followed the course in AWS Educate "Introduction to PartyRock." This is what I learned.
This course is basically an introduction to concepts like GenAI and prompt engineering while also explaining what PartyRock does. I found the concept of no-code platforms very intriguing; I assumed it was something similar to Gemini or ChatGPT.
It briefly but insightfully detailed what GenAI is capable of doing. It also had nice and useful tips for building prompts to better communicate your ideas with AI.

After learning the theory, I was very eager to test out the technology. The course included an interactive screen simulation, but I found it a bit confusing. So, I decided to use the actual technology with the knowledge I had gained.

I was surprised that I didn't need to log in to my AWS account, and I could do it with multiple login options! Plus, it didn't cost me a single cent to experiment !
I'm a fan of video games, so for the app, I wanted an interactive video game novel creator. After inputting the description, the app prompted me to describe the game premise and a main character.
For the game premise, I used this:
You wake up with a splitting headache. The last thing you remember is attending the AWS Partyrock conference, and now you find yourself in a dimly lit room with flickering fluorescent lights. The walls are adorned with posters of AWS services, and there’s a distinct hum of servers in the background. As you stand up, you notice two objects within reach: a glowing USB drive and a dusty manual labeled AWS Secrets. Your task is to escape the seemly dark room and return home.
And for the main character:

I was quite surprised that PartyRock created chapter 1 of the video game while also adding an illustration. I remember when I used to create Visual Novels, creating compelling dialogue and a storyboard was quite challenging, but making a simple world out of a few words in seconds got me really astonished.
After that, I inspected other capabilities of PartyRock. To my surprise, I added a widget that asked for user input and then used that input to make two different endings in Chapter 2. It really made it 100% easier to create a short video game in an instant, basically.

PartyRock is quite a powerful tool, and the only limit might be our imagination and the way we use it.
I wonder what the future has prepared for us.
