Chatops

ChatOps, a term widely credited to GitHub, is all about conversation-driven development.While in a chat room, team members type commands that the chatbot is configured to execute through custom scripts and plugins. These can range from code deployments, to security event responses, to team member notifications. By bringing your tools into your conversations and using a chatbot modified to work with key plugins and scripts, teams can automate tasks and collaborate, working better, cheaper and faster—allowing the entire team to collaborate in real time as commands are executed.

Simple Python code to send message to Slack channel (without packages)

Last week I was working on a Databricks script that needed to produce a Slack message as its final outcome. I lifted some code that used a Slack client that was PIP-installed. Unfortunately, I could not use the package on my cluster. Fortunately, the Slack API is so simple, that you don’t really need a package to post a simple message to a channel. In this blog I’ll show you the simplest way of producing awesome messages in Slack.
