CDK Weekly - Go, Punchcard & Terraform
By Sebastian Korfmann • Issue #16 • View online
Heya - time for the 16th issue of CDK Weekly. There’s been a few releases of the AWS CDK (v1.54, v1.53, v1.52) within the last week and it looks like there was some bug fixes and significant work around RDS happening.
There’s an open RFC Pull Request to support Go as target for jsii and therefore all CDKs if you’re interested in providing feedback on this.
Other than that, there was quite a bit of community activity around the recent Terraform CDK launch, including blog posts and contributions to the Github repo. Besides from that, there’s a new Lambda construct based on Rollup.js without the requirement of Docker, WHOIS monitoring and a price checking tool. Find this and more in the curated links below.
Cheers,
Sebastian

@samgoodwin89 The way I like to think about this is that CDK is an object-oriented, imperative way to create *definitions* which declare the desired state for some system.

@pogrebnyak There are benefits beyond programming in your familiar language. You building higher-level abstractions is easier. The IDE is more powerful. Developers build less monolithic IaC. The ROI of adopting #awscdk has been amazing!
