Build-a-GitHub-Bot Workshop


GitHub provides a great platform for collaborating. You can take it to the next level by creating custom GitHub bots. By delegating some of the chores to a bot, you get to spend more time developing your project and collaborating with others.

Learn how to automate your workflow by building a personal GitHub assistant for your own project. We'll use libraries called gidgethub and aiohttp to write a GitHub bot that does the following:

  • Greet the person who created an issue in your project.
  • Say thanks when a pull request has been closed.
  • Apply a label to issues or pull requests.
  • Gives a thumbs up reaction to comments you made. (becoming your own personal cheer squad).

The best part is, you get to do all of the above using Python 3.6! F-strings included!
