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

Creating Tables and Loading Sample Data

In this section, you will use the AWS Management Console to create tables in DynamoDB. You will then load data into these tables using the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI).

These tables and their data are used as examples throughout this Developer Guide.


If you are an application developer, we recommend that you also read Getting Started with DynamoDB, where you use the downloadable version of DynamoDB. This lets you learn about the DynamoDB low-level API for free, without having to pay any fees for throughput, storage, or data transfer. For more information, see Getting Started with DynamoDB.
