Details

We are happy to arrange the second meetup of the fall together with Enfo on the topic Infrastructure as Code.

Building a Serverless Slackbot with Machine Learning Capabalities using the AWS CDK

During this event we’ll look deeper into the AWS Cloud Development Kit (AWS CDK) and how it can be used to build a Machine Learning Capable Slackbot based on serverless services within AWS. The AWS CDK is a framework that allows you to define infrastructure in code and provisioning it through CloudFormation. The AWS CDK comes with several advantages over plain CloudFormation configuration enabling you to:

- Share and reuse infrastructure libraries
- Test your infrastructure code
- Use logic (if, loops etc) in your infrastructure definition
- Higher level of abstraction
- Code completion within your IDE
- Define infrastructure in a familiar programming language
- And more…

During the meetup we will demonstrate how to configure and provision infrastructure using the AWS CDK, we will also discuss difficulties, advantages and share our honest opinion on the state of the AWS CDK.
