A software development kit (SDK) is a collection of software development tools in one installable package. They facilitate the creation of applications by having a compiler, debugger, and sometimes a software framework. They are normally specific to a hardware platform and operating system combination.
SDKs typically use software development programs that serve as central programming interfaces. The IDE can support a programming window for writing and a debugger to fix errors. The IDE also includes a compiler which is used to build applications from source code files.
The SDKs often include sample code that provides developers with sample programs and libraries. Some SDKs may also use sample graphics such as icons that can be added to the application. All of these features shorten the development time, giving your technical team a much needed head start. Also, most often, SDKs are accompanied by thorough documentation to shorten the onboarding.
