    Notifications Calendrier Serverless par SMS avec Postman et Twilio Notifications Calendrier Serverless par SMS avec Postman et Twilio

    J'adore manger des fruits frais, mais je ne sais jamais ce qui est de saison tant que je ne vais pas chez mon épicier. Imaginez donc mon bonheur quand j'ai découvert les Journées nationales des fruits ! C'est vrai, ce n'est sans doute qu'un coup marketing dans mon pays, mais cela me permet aussi de me tenir au courant de ce qui est de saison.

    Ce tutoriel vous explique comment configurer des notifications de calendrier personnalisées. Même si vous ne vous intéressez pas aux fruits, apprenez à déclencher une notification à une date donnée à l'aide d'un moniteur Postman, afin de ne jamais manquer un événement spécial. Dans ce tutoriel, nous effectuerons les opérations suivantes :

    • Configurer une collection Postman
    • Ajouter un exemple de réponse pour le stockage de données
    • Simuler l'API sur les serveurs Postman
    • Configurer une notification SMS avec Twilio

    Build a Face Recognition System with Email Alerts using Python, OpenCV and SendGrid Build a Face Recognition System with Email Alerts using Python, OpenCV and SendGrid

    If you wake up in the middle of the night to investigate a noise, it’s very important to identify the intruder as your sister or a stranger within a split second. Newborns as young as one to three years old can distinguish between known faces. Throughout the history of humankind, human brains have gotten really good at recognizing faces.

    On the other hand, software that does face detection relies on machine learning algorithms to locate human faces in images and videos. Then software that does face recognition analyzes the detected facial characteristics to determine if there is a match within an existing dataset. To recognize a particular person’s face, we first need to train a machine learning model to classify an existing dataset of faces. This type of technology is used in a variety of modern applications, like for biometric passports in airports or to unlock your phone. …

    I love to eat fresh fruit, but I never know what’s in season until I go to my local grocery store. Imagine my delight when I discovered national fruit holidays! Yes, it’s probably a marketing gimmick in my country, but it can also alert me to what’s in season.

    This tutorial shows you how to set up custom calendar notifications. Even if you don’t care about fruit, learn how to trigger a notification on a certain date using a Postman monitor, so you never miss any special events. In this tutorial, we will do the following:

    • Set up a Postman collection
    • Add an example response for data storage
    • Mock the API on Postman servers
    • Set up an SMS notification with Twilio
    • Run the collection locally in Postman
    • Schedule a monitor to run on Postman servers

    Visualize Twilio Usage Data with Python, Pandas and Jupyter Notebooks Visualize Twilio Usage Data with Python, Pandas and Jupyter Notebooks

    Some mysteries in life can only be answered by data. For example, if you have questions about your Twilio usage, there’s a few ways to dig into the data. There’s prebuilt summaries and graphs of your activity in the Twilio console, and if you’re handy with a spreadsheet, you can export the data. There’s also third-party providers with out-of-the-box analytics and visualizations.

    If nothing answers your particular question, this tutorial shows you how to make custom reports using the Twilio REST API to access your data and drive your own insights.
