Everybody has to write at least one bot

What is an irc bot? Why would 'everybody' have to write one? How? Just how big a project is (or isn't) this? Come learn about networking and irc and help us get ready for an upcoming workshop on how to build your own irc bot.
Address to be announced, but will be a Tuesday from 7:00 - 9:00pm.

    Review of steps from tonight:
    1. install pip
    2. use pip to install twisted
    3. download ircLogBot.py to a place you can find
    4. create test.log in the same directory
    5. change nickname of bot
    6. add time delay
    7. do something to reduce the rate of the bot's responses
    8. run bot in our test channel


    Bots can be very useful but also spammy or malicious: use them with care.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
