Today, Darko welcomes Michael to help him out and fix the front-end mistake he made in the previous part. Yes, and well, we actually get to deploy our REACT application to The Cloud with AWS Amplify Hosting. Say good bye to localhost:3000 and hello to the internet. We created the AWS Amplify Hosting app, connected it to Darko's GitHub account and configured the build steps needed (thank you Roberttables ❤️). And the best quote of the day was: "Keep in mind, I am expecting this to fail." - Michael L.

Michael created AWS Amplify hosting an AWS CDK L2 Construct that is currently in Alpha, so please make sure to take care when using that in production.
Oh yeah, and if you wish to follow along at home, we have a GitHub repository with the code used today. You can check it out here. And make sure to let us know what other features you would like us to build into this application.
