need to upgrade their version of Python or pin the version of Botocore. For

Assuming that you have Python and ``virtualenv`` installed, set up your environment and install the required dependencies like this or you can install the library using ``pip``:
.. code-block:: sh
$ git clone https://github.com/boto/botocore.git
$ cd botocore
$ virtualenv venv
$ . venv/bin/activate
$ pip install -r requirements.txt
$ pip install -e .
.. code-block:: sh
$ pip install botocore
After installing botocore
Next, set up credentials (in e.g. ``~/.aws/credentials``):
.. code-block:: ini
aws_access_key_id = YOUR_KEY
aws_secret_access_key = YOUR_SECRET
Then, set up a default region (in e.g. ``~/.aws/config``):
.. code-block:: ini
Other credentials configuration method can be found `here <https://boto3.amazonaws.com/v1/documentation/api/latest/guide/credentials.html>`__
Then, from a Python interpreter:
.. code-block:: python
>>> import botocore.session
>>> session = botocore.session.get_session()
>>> client = session.create_client('ec2')
