No matter what your individual definition of DevOps might be, bringing operations and development closer together requires tools and practices suiting both disciplines.
With infrastructure as code, systems and services can be managed in a structured, reproducible fashion, offering huge benefits to many, if not most, organizations.

AWS CDK is a framework for defining infrastructure in a programming language of choice, making it the most accessible option for maintaining AWS resources in processes centered around software developers.
We will have a look at the basic principles and check out real-world examples from six months of CDK usage in production to find an answer to the question if CDK can live up to it’s ambitions goals.
