Summary of talk:
Come learn about AWS' latest Infrastructure as a Code tool, the Cloud Development Kit (CDK). Currently in GA, this tool allows you to define your infrastructure as actual code, not just JSON or YAML. Currently supporting Python, TypeScript, and JavaScript (C# and Java are still in preview), with more languages on the road-map. You can now define your application infrastructure in the same language you define your application, making use of a higher level of abstractions, as well as built-in Amazon smart defaults, which are based on AWS Security and Well Architected best practices. If you're into Infrastructure as Code, this talk is for you!
