CDK Weekly - ECS Extensions & CDK Day
By Sebastian Korfmann • Issue #25 • View online
Heya - let’s dive into the 25th issue of this newsletter. We’ve seen a new release of AWS CDK (v1.65.0) with lots of bug fixes and new features. CDK8s has gained full Java support and jsii Golang support is one step closer with the recent v1.13.0 release.
CDK Day was a pretty huge success, with 3000+ people who signed and a peak at about 1000 live viewers across all the streaming platforms. Fantastic talks, great moderation by the hosts and an awesome job to put this all together by the CDK Day Committee. Can’t wait for the next iteration.
Other than that, there’s been the developer preview of ECS extensions, which looks super interesting. I think that’s a perfect example for why the AWS CDK gained so much traction over the last year. See the official announcement post below, and an example by Nathan Peck.
In further cdk.dev news, the cdk.dev Slack has now 700+ members thanks to the push through CDK Day! I hope we’ll be able to grow this even further and really make it the unified place for all things CDK.
Last but not least, Matthew Bonig put together the Q3 AWS CDK community survey.
Cheers,
Sebastian

🚀 The developer preview of ECS service extensions for AWS CDK is here! I've been working on this for a couple months, to make a better experience for deploying ECS architectures like AWS App Mesh service mesh, or X-Ray tracing: https://t.co/1xBD1A0Ymu
