Tech Term of the Week: SDK

Stands for “Software Development Kit.” An SDK is a collection of software used for developing applications for a specific device or operating system. To enrich applications with advanced functionalities, advertisements, push notifications and more, most app developers implement specific software development kits.

SDKs may have attached licenses that make them unsuitable for building software intended to be developed under an incompatible license. For example, a proprietary SDK will probably be incompatible with free software development, while a GPL-licensed SDK could be incompatible with proprietary software development. LGPL SDKs are typically safe for proprietary development.
