What is ISAA?
The rate of innovation for new tooling either for or inspired by CDK is so mind-bendingly high that nearly every day, we come across a new CDK construct, library, or concept that deals with highly challenging infrastructure problems.
This is no surprise. New tooling creates new ways of thinking about building applications. The way React applications are configured now is different from the way Backbone.js applications were developed, organized, and architected. One could not dream of reaching the same level of resilience for microservices without Kubernetes as an orchestrator of services becoming available.
Much like microservice architecture, AWS CDK allows for a new generation of applications that have even higher degrees of resilience, scalability, and maintainability. It’s a method we use at Westpoint. In fact, we oversee supporting applications that we developed two years ago that need very little support, limited to bug fixes and data clean-ups at times...
