Chat bots are your newest co-worker. Slack, HipChat, and other chat clients allow developers and other team members to communicate more dynamically than the limits of email. Companies have started to add bots to their chat rooms. These bots can give you technical information, restart a server, or notify you that a build has finished.
Jason Hand is the author of ChatOps: Managing Infrastructure in Group Chat. He joins the show today to discuss how ChatOps improves development and operations by centralizing lots of functionality in group chat. Edaena Salinas is the host for today’s show. She also hosts the excellent Women In Tech Show–a podcast we highly recommend.
Since we are on the subject of bots–we want to thank O’Reilly Media for recently providing Software Engineering Daily a ticket to Bot Day.
