Making an automated birthday messenger using python

  • Basic python understanding

Description

Tired of forgetting people's birthdays, tired of wishing people? This course teaches you how to create an automatic birthday messenger. It basically wishes your friend on their birthday using Instagram messager.

The structure of this course teaches you how to simulate web clicks using python. First, it teaches you how to open any url using python, then it shows how to simulate a login on Instagram, then sending messages on Instagram, and lastly teaching you how to read an Excel sheet using python. This course acts just as a guide and there are so many more things that you can do. For example, sending pictures/ videos using Instagram. Creating custom birthday messages, feel free to add your own features to this project. And if you like an extra challenge try creating one for other platforms for example Facebook or Linkedin!

Libraries that I would be using in this course are Selenium ( for simulating web clicks), pandas ( to read an Excel sheet that basically acts as a database. You are also welcome to try different ways of storing your data for example using SQL. By the end of this course you would be able to gain a basic understanding of the Selenium library and pursue your own projects that simulate web clicks using Selenium.

And please give me a rating as well, I would really appreciate it!
