Abstract: Does your chat experience lack weather reports, automatic gif searching and cat pictures? Come learn how to build your own Node based chat bot in Slack. Bring your laptop to join in the fun. We will set up a bot using Github's Hubot ( https://hubot.github.com/ ), customize it, run it locally, then deploy it to Heroku. The whole office will love you.
