How to write your own Slack Chatbots in Javascript

Last week Ansgar Schmidt and I gave a session at Codemotion How to write your own Slack Chatbots in Javascript. Below are the slides with screenshots of our demos.

We demonstrated how to write a Node.js application that uses Botkit to connect with Slack and that uses IBM Watson Conversation as natural language processing service.

Get the code of our sample from GitHub.
