SDK stands for Software Development Kit.

A SDK is a specific set or package of tool designed to jump start a developer's journey or development in a certain area. SDKs are often used to create applications with advanced functions and can also include:

  • Informational or educational content
  • Programing libraries
  • APIs

SDKs are used by developers of all levels to assist them in their goals and developers on Cardano can find multiple SDKs created and open sourced by members of the community.
