SDK is: "Software Development Kit"
--> It is a set of documentation and examples and include files and samples basically needed to develop software applications on that OS

DDK is: "Driver Development Kit"
---> And it is documentation/examples/samples/includes/samples basically needed to develop drivers for that OS

take care as there is an DirectX SDK also for developing games
and many other minor SDK's

That to say that both SDK and DDK just some exmples and samples about how to program on OS.Is it?
I've always been thinking that SDK and DDK are some kinds of programming languages.Now i know that i am worng.
But, does DDK relate to design system drivers?Just like VXD or WDM.Thank you!

I am going to assume you are asking about the Microsoft Windows SDKs and DDKs since this is a Windows ASM board.

The SDKs and DDKs do contain sample code for the various technologies. More importantly, they contain the documentation of the functions and how to use them. Also included are special tools, header files, and libraries.

The Windows platform SDK is free to download at

The DDK is not available for download, but the CD can be ordered
