Conceived on Aug 12, 2012
I’ve recently been considering an idea for a new project, and I’ve slowly began to code it in my spare time, when I’m not developing Instahero. The basic idea is a bot that will hang out in companies’ channels, giving them useful commands, logging, and lots of other functionality.
There are various open-source solutions which one can use to do the same thing, but I think there’s also need for a hosted solution where you can just register, enter your room details and get a bot in it in one minute. As a developer, I know my life would be much easier if we had deployment commands, conversions, various searches, bug report notifications, etc available right in the channel where our team spends the day. I’m sure other developers feel that way too, so I started developing Instabot.
