The AWS Cloud Development Kit (AWS CDK) is now generally available in TypeScript and Python. AWS CDK is an open source software development framework to model and provision your cloud application resources using familiar programming languages. With AWS CDK, you can define your infrastructure as code and provision it through AWS CloudFormation. AWS CDK is also available in Java and C# in developer preview.

AWS CDK provides high-level components that preconfigure cloud resources with proven defaults, so you can build cloud applications without needing to be an expert. It also enables you to compose and share your own custom components that incorporate your organization's requirements, helping you start new projects faster. Check out our AWS blog post for detailed product experience.

There are no additional charges to use AWS CDK.  You pay for AWS resources (such as Amazon EC2 instances, Elastic Load Balancing load balancers, etc.) created using AWS CDK in the same manner as if you created them manually. AWS CDK is available to use in all regions.
