Are you making a game and looking to integrate a cloud-based database to store player data, inventories, and high scores? Good news, Amazon DynamoDB, a key-value store, and Amazon Aurora, a SQL database, are two purpose-built databases that can help.

Learning Objectives

  • Learn how to create Amazon DynamoDB tables and Amazon Aurora databases
  • Lean about the types of data each database works with, how they are queried, and how that helps you determine which one fits with different game systems
