Adventures with Amplify

Frontend First

Sam and Ryan talk about Ryan's recent experience using Amplify on a side project. They chat about the tradeoffs between using services and writing your own backend code, and how backend services let you do more at the cost of not understanding as much about how the system works.

Topics include:

  • 9:10 – Why Gatsby's content mesh is so good
  • 23:00 – How much of your backend is your product
  • 35:00 – Auth in Amplify
  • 44:00 – Using Mirage with an Amplify app
  • 56:00 – Firebase/Amplify/Hasura comparison
