"The promise of so-called “low code/no code” software-development tools is to enable anyone to create business applications around their custom needs. It sounds like Amazon Web Services is getting ready to extend that idea to everyone.
Based on several LinkedIn resumes and a recent tech talk, it now seems like more than 50 engineers are working on a secretive low-code/no-code project that’s part of an effort called AWS For Everyone."
"The whole low-code/no-code concept has been evolving over the past few years. Just as the value of adding simple web applications to older business workflows often based around paper has become clear, professional developers are being pushed to develop and ship code for mission-critical applications on a near-constant basis.
Companies like AppSheet, K2, and Smartsheet have been working on tools for these types of users, and big providers like Microsoft, Google and Salesforce also offer their cloud customers access to these types of tools."

The new product is likely to be a variation to "spreadsheet" / "light database"
something to compete with Microsoft Office and Google Docs.
Adam Bosworth certainly has plenty of experience making such tools:

A possible product name may be "WorkSheets", to match:
