Building your first IDP with CDKTF and TypeScript

To avoid bottlenecks in deployment, many platform teams provide a self-service platform, called an Internal Developer Platform (IDP), from which developers can deploy environments on their own.

The Cloud Development Kit for Terraform (CDKTF) is an Infrastructure as Code (IaC) tool that allows you to define infrastructure using a familiar programming language like TypeScript, Python, and Go.

This talk will cover:

  • How to define AWS infrastructure with CDKTF and TypeScript.
  • How to build a rudimentary IDP using Node.js, Express.js, and Passport.js on the backend, and React.js on the frontend.
  • Explain challenges I faced and what I would have done differently.
