At its re:Invent conference today, AWS announced the release of AWS Application Composer, a new low-code tool for graphically planning and developing serverless applications. The service gives programmers a visual canvas and a straightforward drag-and-drop interface.
Many developers want to start developing serverless applications, but the entry barrier is still too high for many, as AWS CTO Werner Vogels noted in his keynote speech today. You must approach serverless apps differently because they are typically asynchronous systems (one of the primary focuses of Vogels’ talk today). In order to improve this, the team chose to use Application Composer interface for developing functions, connecting resources, and creating application architecture.
