Module 2: Install the AWS Cloud Development Kit
Install the AWS Cloud Development Kit
In this module, you will install and configure the AWS CDK
What you will accomplish
- Install the AWS CDK CLI (Toolkit)
- Bootstrap your AWS account
Before you start your work with the AWS CDK, you need to have its toolkit (CLI) ready and available on your workstation. This tool is the link between the code you write and the infrastructure you provision, so it is important to have it set up and to use the latest version.
Additionally, once the CLI is configured, you need to bootstrap your account so the CDK can deploy resources to it properly. The bootstrapping process creates resources required for the CDK to operate correctly.
This should take care of everything you need to start working with AWS CDK. Once you have the CLI installed and the AWS account and region combination bootstrapped, you can start writing and deploying some infrastructure.
