I'm going to build a workflow that will search Twitter every hour for a keyword. It will take the results, format them nicely, and then email it.

Normally I don't like to blog about stuff that isn't generally available to all, but as it will be available sometime soon, I decided to go ahead anyway. And I built something really cool I want to share so that's another reason to talk about this now!
Integrating Location Data into Pipedream Workflows
Integrating Location Data into Pipedream Workflows
Over the past few months, I've become somewhat enamored with a new service called Pipedream. Pipedream is yet another serverless solution with a bit of a twist. It makes it easy to build workflows by piecing together various actions like LEGO bricks. These actions are small pieces of programming logic that cover a wide variety of different services. You can connect these actions together along with the ability to write Node code for your own logic.
