Not really happy how it turned out (they literally called me "baby George" and misspelled the word "company"), but it's still worth mentioning

Made a Telegram bot that makes it easier to join class video callsOctober 20th, 2020

Right after schools switched to remote learning, Moscow's Department of Education required that instead of Zoom, schools must use Microsoft Teams for remote classes, and instead of having teachers send invite links directly to students, students had to get call invite links from the Moscow Electronic School (a.k.a. MESh) system (a LMS developed by the Moscow Department of IT).

On the first day of remote learning, due to extreme load, MESh's servers crashed and the website was only available during the night.

I built a bot that logged into MESh every day at 4AM, fetched the invite links for the upcoming classes and posted them in our school's group chat

Even though MESh is mostly stable now, my classmates still use the bot to join calls because it's a lot more convenient to just tap the link in the group chat than to log into MESh
