Build a Slack Bot in Python

We'll go over fundamentals of the Python programming language by building a slack bot using the slack sdk. We'll start with a blank slate and build a bot that you can extend. Learn to set up your environment for testing and code coverage. We'll also look at list compression, mocking objects, dynamic module loading. A bot can help automated many tasks and is fun! Many organizations use chat bots to automate certain tasks including getting information quickly and even releasing builds or making system wide changes. This new way of working is often referred to as ChatOps. In addition to company specific tasks, bots are used to also inject fun into the workplace by providing cat gifs or jokes as needed. I'll share how code camp uses it's bot ccbot to help us plan the event! We'll look at how you can store secrets in environment variables, as well as easily deploy this bot to an ec2 instance.
