30.8.2021 [Online] Infrastructure is Code with C# and the AWS Cloud Development Kit with Dennis Traub


Hi everyone

After the summer break with have Dennis Traub talking about how you can leverage .NET together with the AWS CDK to deploy infrastructure in AWS.

Infrastructure is Code with C# and the AWS Cloud Development Kit

Developers using DevOps practices like to take advantage of Infrastructure as Code. Traditionally, this has been done using configuration files, implemented in YAML, JSON, or similar text file formats, and are missing most of the advantages of modern programming languages.

Wouldn’t it be better to use the expressive power of your favorite programming language to define your cloud infrastructure? The AWS Cloud Development Kit (AWS CDK) is a multi-language, open-source framework from AWS that enables developers to harness the full power of modern programming languages to define reusable cloud components and provision applications built from those components.

In this hands-on demo, we’ll quickly cover the basic concepts of the CDK and then spend the majority of our time live coding an application with the CDK. You’ll learn you how to use the CDK to quickly assemble your AWS infrastructure using C# and .NET. We’ll also explore the AWS Construct Library and show you how easy it makes it to configure your cloud resources, manage permissions, connect event sources and even build and publish your own constructs.

In this session, you will learn:

  • About core concepts of the AWS CDK framework
  • How to deploy your own cloud-base infrastructure using C#
  • How to build and reuse your own components
