Best way to authenticate boto3??

I'm building a Python based desktop application to work with some AWS services. The application has a front-end built with the kivy framework and AWS boto3 being the primary tool in the back-end. So my aim is to access services such as AWS IoT & DynamoDB using this application.
The question is, according to AWS standards, we've three modes of authentication for boto3 to access AWS servers.
1. X.509 certificates
2. IAM Authentication
3. Cognito Identities
X.509 certificates are mostly preferred for embedded devices and not in applications.
That leaves me with 2 options, either IAM or Cognito.
I'm not convinced with the idea of hard coding credentials into our code.
In such a case which one of these is a better way of authentication and why?
Do we really have a problem if we hard-code IAM credentials in our application code?
Developing Android Applications with Eclipse is a bit old way. Few eclipse enthusiasts might be doing it still though. For your issue, check all the environment variables related to SDK and Emulators are correctly configured.
If you're a beginner and no specific reason to use Eclipse, try to start with AndroidStudio.
@rahuleapen Can you please share the connection diagram?
Arduino has been compiled to run a motor pump. The pump seems to be working fine via the 5v and ground port with appropriate voltage and current. The same voltage and current is seen across the gpio whenever turned high but the motor doesn't run via gpio. Can anyone help me out here..please it's urgent
@rosetoby Thanks for sharing, can you post your queries with details, code snippet ..etc
@vipin-i-v I think so, let us know the updates!
