I got tired of reloading a page, so I did it the lazy way.

Due to Coronavirus, the GT Rec Center (CRC) is requiring online sign ups. The spots are very limited and are posted throughout the day. Instead of constantly reloading the page, I made a notification system.

I used python to do HTTPS requests and Telegram to send out the notifications easily. Lastly, I uploaded the script to an AWS EC2 instance to run independently of my computer. It was a great way to familiarize myself with beautifulsoup for webscraping in python, and now I won’t waste time reloading the page anymore!

Join the Telegram channel to get notifications by clicking here. For more info check out my Github repository.
