    You can always count on the fact that I will get lost the first week of each college semester. I can have a physical copy of my schedule, my schedule set as my phone wallpaper, or a web page with my schedule pulled up. However, it can still take me a while to sift through webpages, find the building, search up the building, open up the directions, and then find the classroom.

    With the new school semester coming around the corner, this problem came to mind during a coding workshop, and I programmed it in less than an hour. In this tutorial, you will learn how to use Twilio SMS, Python, and Airtable to send you an SMS message of your classes with directions for the day, so you can find your classes on time.

    How to Integrate Ngrok in a Twilio Java Application header - How to Integrate Ngrok in a Twilio Java Application

    When you are developing an application that uses Twilio services you need to expose your webhooks on public URLs that can be reached by Twilio. If you have followed some of the tutorials that we published on this blog you know that we recommend using the excellent ngrok tool to generate temporary public URLs for your development web server. Ngrok is an incredibly useful tool that creates a tunnel from a URL on the ngrok.io domain to your application running on your computer. You can then configure your webhook using the ngrok URL and when Twilio sends a request to it, ngrok redirects it to your application.

    If you use ngrok frequently enough, it pays off to become a paid customer, which allows you to secure a permanent URL.

    In this article I’m going to show you how to fully automate ngrok by incorporating it into your Java application. …
