Messaging Using Amazon SQS

The AWS SDK for .NET supports Amazon SQS, which is a message queuing service that handles messages or workflows between components in a system. For more information, see Amazon SQS.

The following examples demonstrate how to use the AWS SDK for .NET to create and use Amazon SQS queues.

The sample code is written in C#, but you can use the AWS SDK for .NET with any compatible language. The AWS SDK for .NET installs a set of C# project templates. So the simplest way to start this project is to open Visual Studio, and then choose File, New Project, AWS Sample Projects, App Services, AWS SQS Sample.
