How To Install Boto3 for Python To Work With AWS
Amazon offers a variety of tools that help developers to work with the AWS SDK to automate AWS resources. Python is among the many scripting languages that AWS provides an SDK for. That makes sense because Python is one of the most popularly utilized scripting languages for IT operations, especially in the machine learning space. To use Python with the AWS SDK, developers will first need to install the Boto3 package for Python.
Installing the Boto3 package is quick and easy. Use the PIP package manager for Python:
pip install boto3
After installing the Boto3 package, you will need to configure it with your AWS IAM credentials before being able to utilize it.
For more information on the installation process for Boto3, visit its AWS documentation page in the Amazon knowledge base.
