Hi I've been using Pulumi for a few side projects recently and I'm really liking it. I just came across AWS CDK. Could someone let me know or point me in the right direction to find out the differences between the two? Thanks
Didn't know about CDK. Looks interesting. Another difference would be that AWS CDK is only going to work with AWS - no other cloud providers.

Good point! I really like that about Pulumi, especially the cloud module
I only just stumbled across CDK - not sure why AWS is keeping it such low key 😄

Likely because it's in developer preview.

AWS CDK has definitely taken some inspiration from Pulumi. As noted above, it's AWS-only and focused on generating CloudFormation templates, which limits some of the flexibility. But like Puulmi it embraces using general-purpose programming languages to target AWS - something we obviously think is a really good idea!
