Code examples with guidance for the AWS SDK for C++

If you are new to AWS or the AWS code examples, we recommend you start with Get started on code examples.

Source code that shows how to work with AWS services using the AWS SDK for C++ is available in the Code examples chapter of this guide or in the AWS Code Examples Repository on GitHub.

This section selects several AWS services and guides you through the examples using them. The following guided examples are a subset of what is available on Github.

Service examples with additional explanation (see AWS Code Examples Repository for full list)
Service Summary of what the service provides to your program

Amazon CloudWatch

Collects and monitors metrics for AWS resources you are using

Amazon DynamoDB

A NoSQL database service

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2)

Secure, resizable compute capacity

Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3)

Data storage and retrieval (objects into buckets)

Amazon Simple Queue Service (Amazon SQS)

Message queuing service to send, store, and receive messages between software components

There are also examples that show how to use Asynchronous methods.

To propose a new code example to the AWS documentation team, see Contributing guidelines on GitHub to create a new request. The team prefers to create code examples that show broad scenarios rather than individual API calls.

Using the Code Examples on Windows

If you are building the examples on Windows with SDK version 1.9, see Troubleshoot build issues.
