Typescript Beyond The Stack with the CDK with Ryan Cormack

8/21 @ 2:00 PM PT

The modern technology stack traditionally consists of the Frontend, Backend and a Database. But we need a way to get our code from our computer to their server. The AWS Cloud Developer Kit (CDK) is a tool that allows us to write and deploy our infrastructure in languages used to write the rest of the stack, including Typescript. By leveraging the CDK we’re able to write our infrastructure, backend and frontend all in Typescript and even deploy it to Amazon’s serverless compute platform. In this session Ryan will look at the basic concepts behind the CDK, what is happening when you use it and how it allows us to quickly and easily get a full stack Typescript application, with a website, API and database, up and running in a language we are familiar with.
