0:00 Hello, and welcome back to the 100 Days of Web in Python. Day 77, you are almost 80 percent in. And over the coming four days
0:11 we're going to look at one of my favorite topics which are bots. First, we are going to automate the tweeting of our 100 Days of Code
0:19 by making a simple Twitter bot and secondly we are going to make a Slack slash command that, when invoked, like slash book
0:27 sends a random recommendation or random book, to the Slack channel from where it is invoked. It's very fun stuff, and with the rise of the Chatbot
0:38 it's a very relevant skill to learn. And it's easy to implement in Python. Just to emphasize how important it is to know something about Chatbot
0:49 it is estimated that by 2020 Chatbot will be handling 85 percent of customer service interactions. They're already handling about 30 percent
1:00 of transactions, now. Apart from those interesting projects you will see logging, conflict parser requests, Beautiful Soup, a library called Tweepy.
1:13 So, there's a lot of good stuff you can get out of this module. So, let's dive straight in.
