Description

AWS CDK assets consist of local files, directories, or Docker images that represent artifacts required by your application. Assets can either be stored in an Amazon S3 bucket or Amazon ECR repository, both of which are created on your behalf during the CDK bootstrapping process. The AWS CDK is capable of bundling and managing these assets during your stack deployments.

In this lab, you will learn about the two CDK asset types and incorporate one of them in a sample CDK application.
