One great resource to get started with the CDK is to follow this workshop with the language of your choice :)

There is no Ruby with AWS CDK 😭😭. I get it though, rather than using YAML or json you can just use the language you have always used?

Not only that, the amount of code that you write will be less as well. Creating a VPC implementing High Availability is just 3 lines of code :)

Wowzers, I defo need to play with that. I know that CF and TF provide state management or at least change drift. Is CDK purely for provisioning as part of your automated stack build?

Yup CDK generates a CF template so it's a wrapper above CF and supports the features that CF provides :)
