Don’t miss this rare, joint meetup exclusively for members of Seattle Android Developers AND Eastside Android Developers. Guest speaker Dennis Hills will overview the latest mobile concepts for building and testing secure and scalable mobile applications, APIs, bots, and more using Amazon Web Services (AWS).

At a minimum, we’ll explore:

* Common mobile use cases, services, and features of AWS

* Using AWS Mobile Hub as an entry-level cloud platform to build, test, and monitor your apps

* Dive into user authentication, data storage, APIs, push notifications, content delivery, and analytics—for your mobile apps and what’s required to power them

* Trends in mobile backend like microservices, serverless, bots, and AI

* Testing your app across a large selection of physical devices in the cloud using AWS Device Farm
