Placing tools directly in the middle of the conversation
- Jesse Newland, GitHub
Every team member has skills and master tools
What if someone need help but no one here to response ?
But everyone use a chat client for better communication
ChatOps is all about conversation driven development
by bringing your tools into your conversations
What are the benefits of ChatOps ?
Everyone can see what is happening, even on their first day
"Everyone is pairing all of the time"
Quickly access data
A piece of software that you chat with to get things done
It's your own personal assistant to take care of everything
Roles of the bots
And many funny things
A Python-based bot
Chat bot written in Ruby with persistent storage provided by Redis
A chat bot written entirely in Coffeescript and Node.js by GitHub
1) You must install npm and node.js from www.nodejs.org
npm install -g hubot coffee-script yo generator-hubot
2) Install the following packages :
hubot / coffee-script / yo / generator-hubot
3) Create a directory to house your new friend and run the yeoman generator :
4) Start hubot server :
Hubot out of the box doesn't do too much, but with scripts it's can do interesting things
Where to Find Pre-built Scripts ?
The only limit is your imagination
But, be careful about what your new friend can do
ChatOps use cases
Backing-up MySQL database without leaving the chatroom
Check up jobs
Anyone in the team can talk to the ChatBot anytime to check up the Jenkins building progress
Administrate your github organization
Manage your trello board
