Slack is a great tool for team communications, and sometimes, we want to fit our existing company workflows and needs within it.
Best case scenario - you can do stuff with other systems, without ever leaving Slack.
The usual approach is - “Is there a Slack bot that can do X?” and you start looking for existing solutions.
And what happens in most of the cases is, you install a random app that kind-of covers your needs, but also adds a ton of other stuff that you don’t need.
And you miss a great opportunity to customize things to better fit your company / culture.
It turns out that you can quickly build your own Slack bot to fit your own specific needs!
In this training, we’ll explore:
- How to handle bot mentions and replies, using FastAPI.
- How to talk back with Slack.
- How to test your bot so you can make sure everything works smoothly.
- How to have some fun implementing the different bot behaviors!
Goals of this training:
- Show how to easily spin your own Slack bot with Python!
- Explore FastAPI along the way.
The training is beginner friendly.
