PHP Dorset July Meetup
Monday, 7 July 2014 from 18:05 to 20:55 (BST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Note: Session is moving to start at 18:05 to give us a few minutes to get the room ready before everyone comes in. This is instead if our previous 18:00 start.
This month we have our own Dave Baker (@fully_baked) co-founder & organiser of PHP Dorset giving a talk about turning group chat into more than just a means of communicating with your colleauges
All Hail Our 'Bot Masters (or chat-ops for fun & profit)
As developers we spend the majority of our time on writing code for our products, clients, employers, open source projects etc, but how much extra stuff do we "hack" together time and time again for those 1-off tasks that just aren't 1-off
We have been experimenting with a concept from Github known as Chat-Ops in which you tie your services into a chat client (HipChat, Campfire, Slack, IRC) and have a 'bot running with a variety of commands that can make your life easier, through notifications from Github pull requests, new issues, or server monitoring alerts, or even asking the bot to do deploys, check the server status, parse the logs (or retrieve images of ceiling cat)
This talk introduces hubot and some of the things we've been doing with it.
If you want to attend the talk at the library you'll need to register for a ticket, but if you want to just join us at The Libertine for the social you won't need one.
We will be meeting at Westbourne library for the talk, then walking down the road to our usual haunt of The Libertine for post-talk drinks and dicussion
