Amazon DynamoDB is a fully managed, highly scalable distributed database service. In this technical talk, we show you how to use Amazon DynamoDB to build high-scale applications like social gaming, chat, and voting. We show you how to use building blocks such as secondary indexes, conditional writes, consistent reads, and batch operations to build the higher-level functionality such as multi-item atomic writes and join queries. We also discuss best practices such as index projections, item sharding, and parallel scan for maximum scalability.
