LocalStack Insiders

Announcing LocalStack Insiders to help us shape the future of LocalStack!

We are launching the LocalStack Insiders program, and for the initial installment, we are seeking users of all levels of experience who are utilizing LocalStack for non-commercial purposes (i.e., for individual use). We are currently working on making LocalStack even more accessible and aim to bring it to a wider audience. To express our appreciation for your participation, we are excited to offer the full power of LocalStack free for non-commercial use to our Insiders! Sign up now to be among the first on the waiting list. We are eagerly looking forward to welcoming the first users to the Insiders Program in the upcoming weeks!

📢 Register for our next Community Event on Amplify & Testcontainers!

In our last meetup, we discussed about developing & testing Lambda functions and IAM configurations locally. In this community event, we will explore further technologies that you can leverage alongside LocalStack for a smooth cloud development & testing experience. This community event will feature two talks on (1) getting started with Amplify on LocalStack for a fully-local application development experience, and (2) leveraging Testcontainers with LocalStack to write integration tests for your cloud applications. During the event, we will dive deep into the integrations that leverage LocalStack's cloud emulation capabilities to help you succeed in your day-to-day cloud application development.
