'Pizza' Bot Fun Time Spectacular: Let's Make a Slack Bot

Join the SparkPost team for a fun few hours building a Slack bot that will order you a delicious, hot pizza straight to your door. If you can write some Javascript, you can build a pizza bot! During this workshop you’ll learn how to build a Slack bot from scratch, translate an idea into working code by breaking it down into smaller problems, and work with real-world (sometimes messy) APIs and documentation.


Cole Furfaro-Strode Lead Software Engineer, SparkPost

Cole is a full-stack javascript developer and part-time bot wrangler at SparkPost where he helps build their API, UI, and client libraries. SparkPost helps Twitter, Pinterest, Zillow, and thousands of developers send billions of emails a year. He also helped make a tiny person. She doesn't send any email yet.
