AWS Project – Building a React App with Amplify, Cognito, and CI/CD with GitHub | AWS Tutorial

In this hands-on tutorial, I’ll show you how to build a simple React app (a quiz app) using AWS Amplify and Cognito. We’ll also see how to set up continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) using GitHub. By the time you’re done, you’ll have a fully-functioning application you can share with the world, on a real-live Amplify URL.
