Slack is pretty awesome. If you're bored, why not try playing Jeopardy?

This was a fun experiment in setting up Heroku to work with Slack.

First, you'll want to grab the source code.

You'll need a free Heroku account (requires credit card information, but they don't bill you unless you buy something) and Slack administration privileges (to add integrations).

Hi, this is my basic ramming bot. I hope it gives you some ideas regarding moving, firing, and following other bots. This bot is not very intelligent, it loses about 70% of the time to my advanced targeting robot.

However, it is useful and instructive to run this bot against something you're developing, as it is good at exposing big movement weaknesses - this bot will win if you let it follow you around the map!
