SDX Session (Technical): How to build your very own Slackbot

Shaun VanWeelden, Engagio Ballroom 323, 4:00-5:00 Slack Integrations are an amazing way to get external data directly where you are already at. During the talk, I'm going to give a step by step walkthrough of creating the Slack integration, setting up a basic server to interact with user requests, and how to hook up another API to actually get value. I'll have example code you can copy, I'll be showing how to do this with Javascript (Node.js + Express) and hosting on Heroku, though you're welcome to follow along in your preferred programming language. Some experience with Javascript, Git, and APIs is recommended to get the most value out of this session.
