AWS SDK for Java Developer Guide Is Now Open Source

We are happy to announce that the AWS SDK for Java Developer Guide and AWS Toolkit for Eclipse User Guide are now open-sourced on GitHub! You can edit content and code inline, make pull requests, file issues, and send content suggestions to the documentation and SDK teams.

The AWS SDKs have always embraced openness as a design principle. To date, we have received more than 450 issues and 200 pull requests for the AWS SDK for Java. We decided to open the developer and user guides too, so that we can produce the highest quality, most comprehensive SDK documentation possible.

Although our writers will continue to proactively create content, we will also monitor this GitHub repo to round out the content offering for the SDK. You can star the repos, watch them, and start contributing today!

Let us know what you would like to see. Feel free to contribute your own examples, if you have them. We will look at pull requests as they come in. Your content could become part of the core documentation!
