Is the lab open?
So the SRM SE lab is group of around 10-15 people and there is no telling when the lab is open. Sure there is a WhatsApp group where you can ask
is the lab open? and you can patiently wait hours till everyone reads the message and ignores you or lose your willpower to go to the lab by the time someone in the lab replies to your message.
/itlo on SRM Search Engine team on slack to check the status of the lab or
/whtk to see who all have the keys to the lab.
The API is powered by Django on Heroku. So you need to change the state whenver the lab opens or closes. You can also change the text field if the you have been given the key.
