Running the Code Samples In This Developer Guide

The AWS SDKs provide broad support for DynamoDB in Java, JavaScript in the browser, .NET, Node.js, PHP, Python, and Ruby. To get started quickly with these languages, see the Amazon DynamoDB Getting Started Guide.

The code samples in this Developer Guide provide more in-depth coverage of DynamoDB operations, using the following programming languages:

Before you can run any of the code samples, you need to create some tables and data in DynamoDB. For more information, see Creating Tables and Loading Sample Data.


If you are using the downloadable version of DynamoDB, you need to use the AWS CLI to create the tables and sample data. You also need to specify the --endpoint-url parameter with each AWS CLI command. For more information, see Setting the Local Endpoint.
