Step 10: Delete the Movies Table

In this step of the Microsoft .NET and DynamoDB Tutorial, you delete the Movies table in Amazon DynamoDB.

The Main function in DynamoDB_intro waits on DeletingTable_async, which is implemented in the 10_DeletingTable.cs file:

DeletingTable_async waits on the low-level DynamoDB method AmazonDynamoDBClient.DeleteTableAsync to delete the table.
