Is Pulumi an alternative for AWS CDK?

We had a similar understanding but the aws cdk doesn't have the pulumi automation api layer equivalent and relies on cli etc.

welcome @brave-table-13240! I wouldn’t say it’s an alternative 🙂 it’s a different model. Here’s some similarities: • both AWS CDK and Pulumi use programming languages to author infrastructure differences: • Pulumi supports multiple cloud providers • Pulumi allows you to embed infrastructure provisioning in your own workflows using automation API • Pulumi doesn’t transpile down a configuration language giving way more flexibility than CDK • Pulumi is faster than cloudformation 🙂
