Install CDK

If you are using remote VM, please skip this section as CDK is already installed there.

Using your own computer

First you need to install the AWS CDK Toolkit. The toolkit is a command-line utility which allows you to work with CDK apps.

Verify that you have Node.js installed by running the following command:

node --version

You should see output like this:

v13.10.1

Run the following command to install AWS CDK:

npm install -g aws-cdk

Verify that AWS CDK is correctly installed by running the following command:

cdk --version

As output you should see version number, something like this:

1.62.0 (build 8c2d7fc)
