Creating tables and loading data for code examples in DynamoDB

In this tutorial, you use the Amazon Web Services Management Console to create tables in Amazon DynamoDB. You then load data into these tables using the Amazon Command Line Interface (Amazon CLI).

These tables and their data are used as examples throughout this developer guide.

Note

If you are an application developer, we recommend that you also read Getting started with DynamoDB and Amazon SDKs, which uses the downloadable version of DynamoDB. This lets you learn about the DynamoDB low-level API without having to pay any fees for throughput, storage, or data transfer.
