What exactly is a SDK(Software developer kit)? Does it work from withing VS or what? Do you write code in it of what is it good for. Do I have to use it if I want to ship my programs?

An SDK is a collection of programming APIs that allow you to create programs faster. Basically, headers and libraries, usually with documentation on how to use it.

For instance, the Microsoft DirectX SDK contains all the libraries and headers and DLLs that one would need to compile a DirectX application. It also includes a number of utilities, source code, tutorials, and demos.
