Dennis' talk description

AWS Mobile Hub is an entry level cloud platform for developers to “build, test, and monitor mobile apps” that leverage AWS services. AWS Mobile Hub lets you easily add and configure features for your mobile apps, including user authentication, data storage, APIs, push notifications, content delivery, and analytics. Whether you are creating a brand new mobile app or adding features to an existing app, AWS Mobile Hub lets you leverage the features, scalability, reliability, and low cost of AWS in minutes. We’ll walk you through feature selection, configuration, and provisioning the AWS services required to power these features. In the process, we’ll explore some of the latest trends in mobile backend like microservices, serverless, bots, and AI. As time allows, we’ll look at testing your app across a large selection of physical devices in the cloud using AWS Device Farm.
