Have you heard about Amazon’s new codeless development platform “Amazon Honeycode” which is released on Wednesday, 25th June 2020, and landed up here?
Well, we are going to discuss everything in this article about Amazon Honeycode. Currently, Honeycode is available in the beta version.
What Problem Will Amazon Honeycode Solves?
A brand new offering from AWS Amazon Honeycode related to all the small and big organizations as every organization has unique requirements for running its business, Each has teams that perform important business functions such as :
> Approving budgets
>Following customer activity
>Tracking Task Progress
All these functions involve tracking data over time and managing workflows with multiple people and often across multiple teams or organizations managing those functions is often done manually today.
You and your team have work to manage, data to report, and goals to crush.
But whether it’s managing a project or tracking customers, you may lack “one-size- fits-all” software that wasn’t built for your team’s specific business needs.
Still not sure about the concept? Here’s an example:
They weren’t designed to adapt to your business. They’re not great for syncing data across teams, everyone’s forced to see the same view, and they’re hard to use on mobile devices.
You might try Project Management Tools, but they’re hard to customize as your business changes.

With Honeycode, You can easily build custom business apps that help your team manage work without programming.
You could run a budget approval process where approvers review requests made through an app.
When requests are approved, your team sees live updates in the app and each person only sees data they’re authorized to see.
With Honeycode, you can build an app for you and your team with a visual editor.
Features of Amazon Honeycode

Step-By-Step: Build Your Amazon Honeycode Business App
Set Up Your Business Data & Tables

Tables work like spreadsheets but have database like capabilities.
You can easily sort filter and link data together to create dynamic views and dashboards that update in real-time as data changes.
Use The App Builder
Amazon Honeycode has a drag-and-drop interface that makes it easy to create the layout for your app to add content and data from the tables.
Add Personalization & Automation
Personalization feature lets you restrict what each user sees in the app, So each person can see only specific data.

The most important thing is, This is a free software.
Will Amazon Honeycode Hurt Developers?
Do you think that this means the end of software development for small business development?
The answer is NO!
Not even close because which you will see is that these code list platforms have limited capabilities at the end of the day.
You’re still gonna have to write some code. So, Yes they are tools worth looking into if you’re looking develop a business based app.
So if you’re a freelance developer for example I would go look see what the offering is and check what honey code can do and see what it can’t do.
We don’t expect Amazon Honeycode or any web development tool to replace the need for developers anytime soon as we expect that the demand for developers is only going up.
All the reports show that in fact there’s going to be a lot fewer developers.
