What is a SDK?
After weeks and weeks of my famous ’I want my WP8 SDK darn it!!’- whining this question seems like a perfect fit for my stupid question series. So what is a SDK?
First the expected definition:
SDK stands for Software Development Kit
A software development kit (SDK or “devkit”) is typically a set of software development tools that allows for the creation of applications for a certain software package, software framework, hardware platform, computer system, video game console, operating system, or similar platform….
Bla bla bla,- oki, here is my try at a better definition:
Basically SDK is just a term used to describe a package that contains the bits and pieces of code (libraries and/or API’s) and tools tools (emulator, compilers, debugging tool etc) that you need for developing certain types of applications, and maybe even templates, examples and documentation. It’s a package of stuff- that should be (more or less he he) complete :)
