AWS Cloud Development Kit

Early 2020 I discovered the AWS Cloud Development Kit (CDK): an open source polyglot software development framework that can be used to write AWS cloud infrastructure as code in modern programming languages like TypeScript, Java, C# or Python.

In September 2020 I wrote an article about my experiences with the AWS CDK over the past months. This article is published in the Dutch Java Magazine: AWS Cloud Development Kit - Infrastructure as Components. In this article I'll show how to build an AWS CDK app in Java (and TypeScript) that can be used to create the AWS infrastructure for a Gatling application with support for realtime monitoring in Grafana.

All code from this article can be found in my GitHub repository.
