Amazon DynamoDB
Developer Guide (API Version 2012-08-10)

Using the API

You can use the AWS Management Console and the AWS Command Line Interface to work interactively with Amazon DynamoDB. However, to get the most out of DynamoDB, you can write application code using the AWS SDKs.

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

Before you can use the AWS SDKs with DynamoDB, you must get an AWS access key ID and secret access key. For more information, see Setting Up DynamoDB (Web Service).

For a high-level overview of DynamoDB application programming with the AWS SDKs, see Programming with DynamoDB and the AWS SDKs.
