A software development kit (SDK or devkit) is typically a set of development tools that allows for the creation of applications for a certain software package.
An application programming interface (API) is an interface implemented by a software program to enable interaction with other software.
Example: Windows operating system provides user APIs through windows Win32 DLLs.
CreateFile() is an example API to access files system of windows. It has been provided by kernel32.dll.
Now developer who wants to access file system must call CreateFile() function from application. Windows Win32 SDK provides this facility. It provides C++ header files and import libraries as a part of SDK. CreateFile() function has been declared in winbase.h and imported through kernel32.lib.
