Event description

Description

Come eat a free lunch, hang out with coders of all skill levels, and work together on creating something awesome using Slack's APIs! Come ready to code and bring ideas!

We will be building bots and apps for Slack. Anything from humourous bots to useful tools to make using Slack more powerful; this event is a laid back, have fun, and code environment!

BEFORE WE START, make sure to do at least a little homework on how the Slack APIs work so that you aren't spending the majority of your time on Saturday reading documentation instead of bringing your idea to life. Here is a great place to start and it shouldn't take long to read through this section to better understand what you can do with Slack: https://api.slack.com/start/planning

In addition to doing a little research, come ready with an idea of what you'd like to build. Not everyone needs an idea, but the same concept applies as coming with a little homework done to learn about how Slack works.. we don't want to spend the majority of our time coming up with a plan, we want to start implementing. There will also be different teams working on different plans; not everyone will be doing the same thing.

If you really want to go above and beyond to prepare, try building a small project that integrates with Slack on your own before the event. Just know, this isn't a requirement, though!
