Since making the move, the number of people that have reached out to me who are also thinking about doing the same has been pretty shocking. It’s really great to see so many other people interested and if I’m being honest — it feels validating to know that so many others are also on the fence and so deeply interested in the space as well.
As for me, well I was nervous…
As a developer getting into this space, I quickly learned there are a lot of differences in the way that we interact with and build on top of blockchains versus what I was used to in the traditional web. With Ethereum (and other blockchains), data isn’t stored in a format that can efficiently or easily be consumed directly from other applications or front ends. …
Today the Amplify Console and Amplify CLI have launched 5 new features for improving how teams manage Amplify backend environments
The Amplify Console now offers visibility into backend environment resources created by the Amplify CLI, providing a central place for development teams to view and manage their backend environments. With this launch, the Amplify Console and CLI now work together — start a project in the CLI and visit the Console to view your backend environments; or deploy a fullstack sample in the Console and continue working on the project locally using the CLI. The Amplify CLI also released the…
If you’re reading this, chances are you are following either me or the Open GraphQL publication.
TLDR: Check out our new publication here.
Medium has defaulted all posts to be behind a paywall (meaning you need to opt out, not opt in) which has caused some confusion for people that have published here in the past. This has caused some posts to be behind a paywall that people may not have really wanted to be behind by default.
Over the past year I’ve seen many people not enjoying the experience of reading on Medium now that many of these articles…
Transforming REST APIs to GraphQL with AWS AppSync
When adopting GraphQL into an existing project or an engineering team, one of the easiest ways to get started is to put a GraphQL API in front of your existing REST API endpoints.
Doing this will allow your team to immediately begin seeing some of the benefits that GraphQL has to offer without having to sacrifice a large amount of engineering work.
With AWS AppSync you can specify “HTTP” data sources to bring in existing HTTP endpoints & perform queries & mutations against them in GraphQL.
Let’s take a look at how…
The Amplify console offers hosting for full stack serverless web apps with continuous Git-based deployment. You connect your Github repo, click deploy, and the application is deployed to a live URL.
Built-in atomic deployments eliminate maintenance windows by ensuring that the web app is only updated when the entire deployment has finished.
If you are launching a project with an Amplify backend, the console will also give you the option of deploying and maintaining the Amplify project.
After you’ve deployed an application, the next step is deploying your app to a custom domain purchased through domain registrars such as GoDaddy…
This post will walk through everything from creating the API, writing the client code, & deploying a custom domain.

I’ve been deep-diving into some interesting use-cases showing some of the real-time capabilities of GraphQL subscriptions.
Last week I sent out a tweet to see what other ideas people had, & there were a lot:
I’ve been playing around with GraphQL subscriptions quite a lot lately, adding real-time functionality to applications to make them interactive. Last week, I released a real-time drawing app using react-canvas-draw:
A few weeks ago I saw this talk at React NYC from Ken Wheeler about building a beatbox using React Hooks.
I was pretty hyped after watching it. I then found the repo for…
In this tutorial, you’ll learn the fundamentals of serverless functions & serverless applications. While this tutorial is focused on front-end developers new to the serverless space, this is a good deep dive for anyone looking to learn more about serverless functions in general.
In a recent article published by UC Berkeley titled “Cloud Programming Simplified: A Berkeley View on Serverless Computing”, this prediction was made:
“Serverless computing will become the default computing paradigm of the Cloud Era, largely replacing serverful computing and thereby bringing closure to the Client-Server Era.”
Warning, the React docs say that Suspense does not yet support data loading, so in the future there may be breaking changes & better options available.
TLDR: check out graphql-suspense to get up & running with GraphQL & suspense.
If you look at the React documentation as of this writing, you’ll see this:
While this is not supported today, in the future we plan to let
Suspense handle more scenarios such as data fetching. You can read about this in our roadmap.
While this may be true, it’s already possible to start using Suspense with data fetching with the current…
