I love Vercel, and you can actually build web apps even in the free tier, using their serverless functions (an abstraction on top of AWS Lambda) and Next.js

This is an awesome article, and I tried out render but Vercel is actually faster and more powerful more my use case (deploying small but fully functional web app projects). Render is slightly more user-friendly but less powerful.

Thanks πŸ”₯. I would say it has enough resources for frontend as the scope of this blog was that only. I may consider writing for backend too.

I've been using Amplify for static sites instead of S3. Much easier to set up with CI and really popular at my company. Also loving Netlify for smaller / personal projects!

I have heard good words about Amplify but never used it. I personally find AWS UI to be hard πŸ˜… that's why never went that way but will look into it sometime. Thanks for mentioning. ☺️
