In this video from the Columbia AWS Meetup held on June 20, 2019, Kevin Homan, an experienced PMP in government IT, discusses AWS’ Cloud Development Kit (CDK) and how it can help you achieve the best practice of Infrastructure as Code to follow the AWS Well-Architected Framework.

The AWS CDK, which is in developer preview, is a first-party open source tool that lets you actually use code to define your infrastructure. The readme sums it up best: “The CDK improves the end-to-end development experience because you get to use the power of modern programming languages to define your AWS infrastructure in a predictable and efficient manner.”
