Overview

DevOps is transforming software development, engineering and operations across the world. Many DevOps workflows rely on real-time collaboration. Teams use messaging to increase efficiency during critical moments—provisioning infrastructure, merging code branches, or addressing urgent bugs. This form of collaboration is accelerated with ChatOps that brings disparate tools and workflows together and provides a shared console for easy collaboration, shorter feedback loops, and automated tasks.

At the center of ChatOps are bots. One of the most popular bots is Hubot, which allows developers to initiate commands to DevOps tools and take automated actions via custom scripts. Slack Bots have also become increasingly popular for team collaboration, ranging from DevOps tools to project management to fun bots that brighten your day.

The goal of this hackathon is to create bots that integrates and/or extends the leading open-source DevOps platform, Mattermost. You have the opportunity to create an open source bot that is used by millions of people from small teams to large enterprises, and make a lasting impact on the DevOps community. Together, let’s create something amazing!
