Automating the signup flow for Coder Bootcamp
Published on Jan 23rd, 2020
Previously I used to submit the Coder Bootcamp form details to my telegram bot and then manually send the email. I wanted to automate the flow and here is what I did.
I created an endpoint in insidert.com and then submitting the form details to it. And then I ran into CORS issue. Coder Bootcamp is sending the request to a different domain and the default security of the browser suspended the request. I struggled a bit before to enable cors on the server but understood the theory when I read with a poised and quiet mind.
After collecting the details at the server, I am storing them in the database followed by triggering the email and telegram message. I am using SendGrid service to handle the emails.
Happy with the results.
