In this video we look at how python can be used to interact with AWS, via the Boto3 library, for beginners with minimal AWS – and even coding experience.To avoid the complexity of covering all the bases on how to configure a users local desktop to interact with AWS, and python, we opt to use Cloud9.

Cloud9 is the AWS web based IDE, and with its free tier eligibility it provides a cost effective way that we can efficiently interact with AWS using python. We start off the video by learning about the basic theory of Boto3, before moving onto a coding demo.

😎 About me
I have spent the last decade being immersed in the world of big data working as a consultant for some the globe’s biggest companies. My journey into the world of data was not the most conventional. I started my career working as performance analyst in professional sport at the top level’s of both rugby and football. I then transitioned into a career in data and computing. This journey culminated in the study of a Masters degree in Software development. Alongside many a professional certification in AWS and MS SQL Server.
