    Former AWS here.

    My literal job for the last part of my time at AWS was "help triage bugs in the AWS SDK." This is by far the best repro I've ever seen for such an in-depth event.

    Most of the tickets you get in open ticket trackers are incomplete [ ] nonsensical [ ] or weird [ ].

  • Beginning Python: Project Management With PDM

    A majority of software in the modern world is built upon various third party packages. These packages help offload work that would otherwise be rather tedious. This includes interacting with cloud APIs, developing scientific applications, or even creating web applications. As you gain experience in python you'll be using more and more of these packages developed by others to power your own code. In this example I've decided to expand our math functionality with NumPy. pdm add is what's used to add dependencies like this to our project:
  • Creating RSS feeds for language/module specific AWS SDK updates
    3 projects | /r/aws | 25 Sep 2023
    The updates could be parsed from the github repo's CHANGELOG files (ex: javascript, java, python). I'm picturing an RSS feed generated for a specific language and module (ex: python s3, javascript s3, java sqs)
  • Teaching boto3 to store floats and datetime objects in DynamoDB
    2 projects | | 7 Sep 2023
    This can be quite annoying because it makes you wonder why the high-level API isn't able to deal with these common data types. Part of the reason for this is most likely that floats in Python can be counter-intuitive, so Decimal is a better data type if you want numbers to behave as non-computer-scientists expect it. To learn more about these complexities, check out this discussion on GitHub about implementing float support in boto3 and the Python documentation on the subject. Additionally, DynamoDB has no native DateTime data type, so there is no straightforward mapping.
  • Interacting with Amazon S3 using AWS Data Wrangler (awswrangler) SDK for Pandas: A Comprehensive Guide
    5 projects | | 20 Aug 2023
    AWS Data Wrangler is a Python library that simplifies the process of interacting with various AWS services, built on top of some useful data tools and open-source projects such as Pandas, Apache Arrow and Boto3. It offers streamlined functions to connect to, retrieve, transform, and load data from AWS services, with a strong focus on Amazon S3.
  • Migrate 5 TB S3 bucket from one AWS account to another
    4 projects | /r/aws | 27 Jun 2023
    Alternatively, you could create a Python script using either Boto3 or her asynchronous sister, aioBoto3 that will spin through the contents of the origin bucket and move it over to the destination.
  • Growing Outside of Work: My Journey with the Cloud Resume Challenge
    3 projects | | 22 Apr 2023
    Once my site was stood up, I needed to build out the user count API. Through the console, I set up a DynamoDB table and created a user count item. Getting my lambda to interface with AWS resources was a breeze with the Boto3 SDK. You can see my Python code that increments the user count whenever someone visits the site here. The key is the usage of the update_item method that comes from Boto3.
  • Logging code mess
    3 projects | /r/Python | 14 Apr 2023
    If you want to get a feel for what kind of logging and how much logging is done in projects, boto3 is a very widely used SDK created by Amazon:

    Schema validations logic — I use Pydantic for input validation and schema validation (boto responses, API responses, input validation, etc.) use cases. The Pydantic schema can contain type and value constraint checks or even more complicated logic with the custom validator code.
