The AWS server has several components and features. To minimize complexity in development, AWS provides AWS IoT Device SDK for various IoT device platforms. You can use them directly for your IoT platform. There are a lot of objects/classes that you can apply in your IoT program to access AWS IoT. You can find out more about AWS IoT SDK at https://aws.amazon.com/iot/sdk/.
Currently, AWS IoT Device SDK supports the following SDK:
- Embedded C
- Arduino Yún
To work with AWS IoT Device SDK, you should verify whether your IoT device supports this SDK or not. We will focus on applying AWS IoT Device SDK in Chapter 2, Connecting IoT Devices to AWS IoT Platform.
