Cool! A pythonanywhere "beginner" app won't be able to do a
thirty-minutely poll, and also won't be able to receive notifications,
so this option would cost money. Depending on the availability of
notifications, you may find that Heroku is a good option - it's great
for anything that's triggered by incoming HTTP requests (which is how
many notification systems work).
