If you are interested in the AWS CDK, this course is ideal for learning about the AWS CDK in a way which makes sense.

The main goals of this course are to explain what is the AWS Cloud Development kit, what it brings to the table that has been previously lacking in other solutions and how to use the AWS CDK through hands-on practice. Other beginner courses focus very heavily on setting up basic infrastructure and teaching the core components – but fail at communicating the true power of the AWS CDK. This leaves it to beginners to spend a lot more time using the AWS CDK to understand its true value and decide whether it is the right tool for their use case. This course puts the value and power of the AWS CDK at the centre of the stage.

This course will:
– Explain how the AWS CDK sits within the current IaC landscape.
– Explain what is the AWS CDK, its core components like App, Stacks and Constructs
