The AWS Cloud Development Kit (AWS CDK) is a new open-source framework from AWS that enables developers to harness the full power of modern programming languages to define reusable cloud components and applications and provision them through AWS CloudFormation. The AWS CDK is shipped with a rich class library that encapsulates the details-defining infrastructure on AWS and enables you to focus on your application. In this session, we discuss why we decided to build the AWS CDK; we describe some of the high-level concepts; and we write some code on stage to demonstrate why we think the AWS CDK is going to be your best friend.
