A follow-up event for the attendees of HamOnt.js - this event will feature a few talks from the community that attended HamOnt.js!
Alex Sopinka (@alexsopinka) will describe how he built an award-winning Slack bot in just 30 days. They are commonly done in node.js and that's what we used with Obie (http://obie.ai). Alex will talk about building the bot (arguably the easiest part), common things to watch out for, integrating with large existing systems, and handling upgrades. One award Obie has won so far: http://www.goldenbridgeawards.com/world/index.html (Startup of the Year 2016 - Human Resources). Also currently nominated for Canadian HR Awards http://www.hrawards.ca/index.php/finalists/2016-finalists (Reader's Choice: Best Service Provider)
