Using Amazon Location with an AWS SDK

AWS software development kits (SDKs) are available for many popular programming languages. Each SDK provides an API, code examples, and documentation that makes it easier for developers to build AWS applications in their preferred language.

For more information about the SDKs available for use with Amazon Location Service by language, see SDKs by language in this guide.

SDK Versions

We recommend that you use the most recent build of the AWS SDK, and any other SDKs, that you use in your projects, and to keep the SDKs up to date. The AWS SDK provides you with the latest features and functionality, and also security updates. To find the latest build of the AWS SDK for JavaScript, for example, see the browser installation topic in the AWS SDK for JavaScript documentation.
