With 365SMS service you can receive SMS to a virtual number and verify your accounts on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Amazon, Airbnb, etc.

  • Buying virtual numbers and receiving SMS in automatic mode.
  • A virtual phone number is issued for 20 minutes. During this time, you can receive an unlimited number of SMS absolutely free.
  • You pay only for the received SMS, prices are as low as 0.3 EUR per number. If the number did not accept SMS, the money will be returned to the balance.
  • Large selection of services (incl. Linkedin) and countries for SMS activation.
  • Convenient API for comfortable work with external software.
  • User-friendly interface. Search by country and service makes it easy to buy a virtual phone number.
  • Dicounts for numbers in bulk.

Note

Since the virtual number is not in the country it represents, so a created 3d party account might be blocked. Therefore it’s better to:

1. Use mobile proxies that match the geolocation of the region of the purchased virtual number;
2. Use a mobile user agent.

Often the problem is not in the number, but in the wrong registration method.

AI code-writing assistant that understands data content and generates code

Recently I’ve encountred a client that predicts “in 6 month AI will be able to do much coding instead of man”.

…in years you’ll be able to on the fly, ask the AI to purchase a server, or create a website with X website builder… and basically, I bet it will write code on the fly on your demand where it connects to these tool’s APIs to really make things happen. It could do this now for some easy stuff but it’s unreliable and will mess up.

Now we’ve ancountered a interesing public repo, called Sketch. It’s AI code-writing assistant for Pandas (Python) users.

The original AWSCodeStarFullAccess policy is full [to provide access to  AWS CodeStar via the AWS Management Console] yet it still does not grant enough access to create a Code connection for IAM at CodePipeline. So we had to manage to create a custom policy based on AWS tutorial suggestions.

AirTable scrape challenge

I need to get info from AirTable, see a table example.

The problem is that data are loaded highly dynamically. Html contains only the information that you currently see on the browser screen.

enter image description here

If there are a lot of records then it is difficult to collect such a table. One of the possible ways is to calculate the size of the screen and rows in the table. Then using the browser automation and use to make a script that will scroll through it bit by bit and collect data.

Is there any other feasible way to get data of a table? For example there is a HTTP requests coding way to get dynamic data.

JS infinite scroll does not work for AirTable either.

Please comment down here if having some tips , hints.
