Coming Soon – AWS SDK for Go

AWS currently offers SDKs for seven different programming languages – Java, C#, Ruby, Python, JavaScript, PHP, and Objective C (iOS), and we closely follow the language trends among our customers and the general software community. Since its launch, the Go programming language has had a remarkable growth trajectory, and we have been hearing customer requests for an official AWS SDK with increasing frequency. We listened and decided to deliver a new AWS SDK to our Go-using customers.

As we began our research, we came across aws-go, an SDK from Stripe. This SDK, principally authored by Coda Hale, was developed using model-based generation techniques very similar to how our other official AWS SDKs are developed. We reached out and began discussing possibly contributing to the project, and Stripe offered to transfer ownership of the project to AWS. We gladly agreed to take over the project and to turn it into an officially supported SDK product.
