The current state of the CDK for Terraform

IaC but with the flexibility of a programming language?

The CDK (Cloud Development Kit) for Terraform is a work in progress from HashiCorp, which lets you deploy infrastructure with Terraform with traditional languages like Python, TypeScript, Java and C#. Even though the CDK team has come a long way, we still have a bit left before this is production ready.

In this talk we will look at how you can get started deploying with the CDK for Terraform and how the project is coming along.

This is a very technical discussion, and audience should probably have a little bit of prior knowledge about Infrastructure-as-Code. Preferred session duration is 30 - 45 minutes.
