Amazon Web Services launches the official AWS SDK for Ruby, enabling developers to get started building scalable Ruby web applications in minutes.

The SDK features:

  • AWS Ruby Gem—Build Ruby applications with the aws-sdk gem that takes the complexity out of coding directly against the web service interfaces. The gem handles common tasks, such as authentication, request retries, XML processing, error handling, and more.
  • Rails Integration—Easily integrate Amazon Web Services into your Rails application using an Object Relational Mapper (ORM) to model your data and persist it using Amazon SimpleDB, and an Action Mailer implementation for Amazon Simple E-mail Service. 
  • Code Samples—Practical examples for how to use the library to build applications available through GitHub.
