Welcome back Purrfect Peeps!

Today we are going to talk with René Brandel about AWS Amplify Admin UI.

The Amplify Admin UI is a visual interface for frontend web and mobile developers to develop app backends and manage app content outside the AWS Management Console. Teams can use the Admin UI to create and manage enterprise-ready, scalable, and secure cloud backends for their apps.
