Thanks. Regardless of the list of topics, which client or package do I need to publish and subscribe?

I'm a bit confused about the AWS client in general. There seems to be a 1.x version and a 2.x version. I assumed I should use the 2.x version, but most of the examples I can find don't work; I think it's because they're written against the 1.x API. What should I do?

You should favor 2.x version. Which AWS IoT SDK are you using?
