Search - "automating your life"
I keep forgetting people's birthdays and thereby I forget to wish people, and wishing people everyday can become a chore. As somebody once said, if you do something more than once, automate it.
Spent two hours and ended up building a bot that consists of four functions: login, checkIfAuthenticated, postToProfile and getBirthdaysToday using mostly axios and cheerio.
Currently works perfectly and I've been thinking of writing a blog post about it for my 'Automating Your Life' series.
I'll post the link in the comments soon when I'm done with the blog post.41
What I thought coders would do when they are at home?
Building and automating everything in their life. How about a button on your wall automatically ordering your favourite pizza? A drone with a camera on the balcony that automatically gets triggered when someone rings the bell, flying down as a high tech and cool door bell camera?
Now that I am a developer, what am I writing in my spare time? Grease Monkey scripts that auto display none the "please do not use add blocker" notices. Living the life!
