Chat Robots Next Level Tooling

Gave this talk at CodeMash Sandusky, OH, USA on January 9th, 2015

Developers are lazy! So we are great in creating tooling for our daily work. But it has its weaknesses, we are creating a tons of scripts on our local machine, sometimes we share them via git or other vcs systems. But all over all this tooling sucks when it comes to collaboration. We developers also love hanging out in chat rooms like campfire or jabber.

Why not combine this via chat robots. Our tooling would be available to everyone without installing wired shell scripts plus we can get rid if questions like: “Do you have the deploy lock?” or “Did you already migrate the database?” - it’s all documented in the transcripts.

I’d like to talk about how to improve your daily work with hubot, a chat robot build by the fine folks at github.
