Introduction to the AWS SDK for .NET

The AWS .NET SDK is a single, downloadable package that includes Visual Studio project templates, the AWS .NET library, C# code samples, and documentation. The AWS .NET SDK makes it easier for Windows developers to build .NET applications that tap into the cost-effective, scalable, and reliable AWS infrastructure services such as Amazon S3, EC2, and SimpleDB.

The AWS .NET SDK features:

  • AWS .NET Library – Build .NET applications on top of APIs that take the complexity out of coding directly against web services interfaces. The all-in-one library provides .NET developer-friendly APIs that hide much of the lower-level plumbing associated with programming for the AWS cloud, including authentication, request retries, and error handling.
  • Code Samples – Practical examples in C# for how to use the libraries to build applications.
  • Documentation – Learn more about how to use the libraries and code samples with online video tutorials and reference documentation.
  • Visual Studio Support – Get started quickly with building solutions for the AWS cloud using Visual Studio Project Templates.
