An Introduction to Boto3: How to Use any AWS Service with Python
AWS defines boto3 as a Python Software Development Kit to create, configure, and manage AWS services. In this article, we'll look at how it works and how it can help us interact with various AWS services from Python. In most cases, we should use boto 3 rather than botocore, which is a low-level Python library that takes care of everything needed to send an API request to AWS and receive a response back. For clients, AWS uses JSON service description, and for resource a resource description as a basis for auto-generated code. For resource, the resource abstraction results in a more readable code.
