Ticket Owl - A Tool to Check for Website Changes

For Valentine’s Day this year I wanted to get a nice gift for a special someone. So I decided to buy some tickets for a dinner and show. Just one problem, the site I was looking at ran out of tickets for currently scheduled shows. When I called the restaurant they told me to check the website - they were going to add more tickets at a later time.

But I didn’t want to constantly check the page to see if new times and dates were added, so I wrote a new project called Ticket Owl to do it for me.

I’ve just released another serverlessfoo.com project - Ben Frankly: Benjamin Franklin’s Frank Opinions of You.

After reading Benjamin Franklin’s autobiography I noticed how he has a knack for memorably describing people. So I parsed through the autobiography and compiled a selection of those descriptions into another Micro-API using the Serverless Framework.

Twilio just published my article on building SMS notification applications with JavaScript and the Serverless Framework. Here’s a teaser:
