Using the API - Amazon DynamoDB
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China.

Using the API

You can use the Amazon Web Services Management Console and the Amazon Command Line Interface to work interactively with Amazon DynamoDB. However, to get the most out of DynamoDB, you can write application code using the Amazon SDKs.

The Amazon SDKs provide broad support for DynamoDB in Java, JavaScript in the browser, .NET, Node.js, PHP, Python, Ruby, C++, Go, Android, and iOS. To get started quickly with these languages, see Getting started with DynamoDB and Amazon SDKs.

Before you can use the Amazon SDKs with DynamoDB, you must get an Amazon access key ID and secret access key. For more information, see Setting up DynamoDB (web service).

For a high-level overview of DynamoDB application programming with the Amazon SDKs, see Programming with DynamoDB and the Amazon SDKs.
