Code examples for DynamoDB using Amazon SDKs

The following code examples show how to use DynamoDB with an Amazon software development kit (SDK).

Actions are code excerpts from larger programs and must be run in context. While actions show you how to call individual service functions, you can see actions in context in their related scenarios and cross-service examples.

Scenarios are code examples that show you how to accomplish a specific task by calling multiple functions within the same service.

Cross-service examples are sample applications that work across multiple Amazon Web Services.

For a complete list of Amazon SDK developer guides and code examples, see Using DynamoDB with an Amazon SDK. This topic also includes information about getting started and details about previous SDK versions.

Get started

The following code examples show how to get started using DynamoDB.

using Amazon.DynamoDBv2; using Amazon.DynamoDBv2.Model; namespace DynamoDB_Actions; public static class HelloDynamoDB { static async Task Main(string[] args) { var dynamoDbClient = new AmazonDynamoDBClient(); Console.WriteLine($"Hello Amazon Dynamo DB! Following are some of your tables:"); Console.WriteLine(); // You can use await and any of the async methods to get a response. // Let's get the first five tables. var response = await dynamoDbClient.ListTablesAsync( new ListTablesRequest() { Limit = 5 }); foreach (var table in response.TableNames) { Console.WriteLine($"\tTable: {table}"); Console.WriteLine(); } } }
