Amazon Web Services made its pitch to developers and companies this morning at the AWS Summit in New York City, showing off new services designed to streamline the process of testing apps and giving other apps access to behind-the-scenes data and features.
The new AWS Device Farm will let developers test Android and Fire OS apps by accessing a fleet of real smartphones and tablets, via Amazon Web Services. The company also announced a new API Gateway service, giving developers and companies the ability to quickly create application programming interfaces for use by other apps.
“I cannot emphasize enough what a game-changer the API Gateway is going to be,” said Werner Vogels, the company’s chief technology officer, via webcast from the event.
Those new services were part of a series announcements from the event. In related news, Seattle-based IT automation company Chef also announced that its service is now available in the AWS Marketplace, with one-click deployment.
