CDK Day 2023

event date

29 Sep 2023




A Cloud Development Kit (CDK) is a developer tool built on the open source Constructs model. We now have multiple CDKs in AWS CDK, CDK for Terraform, cdk8s and Projen.

A small group of community members from across the globe thought this was something worth celebrating so we are going to take one day and showcase the brightest and best of CDK from across the whole product family. Let's talk serverless, Kubernetes and multi cloud all in the same day!

This is a community organised event about AWS CDK, cdktf, projen and cdk8s. This year we are hoping to run an English language and a Spanish language track of talks.

Our goal this year is to be truly global, meaning that the event will span a much larger time zone overlap than previous events, the exact details have yet to be locked down but assume your time zone will be covered.

We want speakers from diverse backgrounds representing the whole spectrum of experience, so if your session is "my first experience using cdk" please submit it just as much as "my experience as a top 10 core AWS CDK contributor" - everyone is welcome

We have a new submission format this year based on feedback from last year's event, we have decided on a set of topics that you can choose to align your submission against then we can make sure at least one talk from all of those topics is present on the day. Note that when the generic "CDK" is used it means any CDK, not just AWS CDK

This year's topics are:

  • cdk8s
  • Projen
  • cdktf
  • Beginning your CDK Journey
  • CDK Builders Tips (e.g. Advanced Serverless with CDK or Testing practices)
  • Real Life Use Cases (e.g. AI/ML, Migration experience, Case Study)
  • Enterprise Stories
  • CDK and Pipelines (e.g. advanced automation, Deployments, Security and environments)
  • Something Else (You have a wildcard use case that you don't think fits into the above)

We plan to broadcast all sessions live but we are always happy to accept a pre-recorded submission
