Discussing User Location Access and Efficient use of API calls in Xano

In this meeting, the State Changers discussed several topics related to API handling, data retrieval, system permissions, and task executions. They discussed how to obtain users' location data, and it was clarified that this efficiently requires user permission. They also mentioned acquiring location data using IP addresses but acknowledged its inaccuracy.

Additionally, the call of one API from another was touched upon. This option was recommended when a combination of operations needed to be executed immediately without a cared result. This could be useful if a user registered and wanted to create their initial data set from an initial form but didn't want to wait for its completion. The State Changers also discussed an alternative pattern using background queues for executing tasks at scale. This process involves adding a record to a table and initiating a background task to perform the job. As an example, monitoring a blockchain every five seconds was cited. This approach could be effective for quick task completion without making the user wait. The services of Xano were mentioned, highlighting its background tasks' efficient run time on the scale plan. The meeting was insightful for running codes and functions without causing undue wait times for users. No other keywords like WeWeb, FlutterFlow, Zapier, Make, Integromat, Outseta, Retool, Bubble, Adalo etc were spotted in the meeting.
