Serhat Can, Technical Evangelist @ OpsGenie.

BIO: Serhat is a Technical Evangelist working for OpsGenie, remotely from İstanbul. He has contributed to different parts of OpsGenie as a software engineer and now tries to spread the word by coding, writing, and talking about topics such as DevOps, Serverless, and incident management. He is also one of the organizers of Serverless Turkey meetup in Ankara and İstanbul.

His interest for Slack started when he joined OpsGenie. He gained a lot of experience about Slack application development when he developed the OpsGenie’s new Slack application which is a featured/top app in the Slack App Directory.


Abstract: Slack is where work happens. Slack applications helping our work-life become much more collaborative, and efficient have the biggest part of its success. Companies are also realizing the importance of bringing their services into Slack. In this presentation, I’ll talk about how to start developing your first Slack application, application types, different APIs, when to use which capabilities and some of the best practices. At the end of the presentation, I’ll make a demo showing a Slack application running on Serverless environment (AWS Lambda).

Prior knowledge as a Slack user will be very helpful to understand the concepts but hands-on experience of a similar tool like HipChat will also be enough.
