Webinar Recording: “Build-a-GitHub-Bot” with Mariatta Wijaya

Posted on by Paul Everitt

This week we had a wonderful guest for a truly-useful webinar: Mariatta Wijaya from Zapier showed us how to write bots to automate our GitHub work (as well as “zaps” for just about any service.) The recording is now available:

Mariatta led with a five minute discussion on a different topic: she’s on the core Python team, so what’s it like being a core Python contributor? We were very fortunate to have her give a sneak peak behind the curtains of the software the we all depend on.

She then covered material from her Build-a-GitHub-Bot Workshop. (Note: she also gave this as a 3 hour tutorial at PyCon, recording available.) She started with a bot that filed GitHub Issues, running from her laptop. She then switched to a bot triggered by a webhook, hosted at Heroku. With a wrap-up demo of the gorgeous Zapier UI for gluing together services.

Big thanks to Mariatta as well as the audience that turned out to learn something very useful.

    Is it possible to get the release notes in a format suitable for a regular text file? I maintain the EAP package in the AUR (Arch Linux) and would like to include the release notes in the changelog (which is a text file). I have been copy/pasting them and then going through it to make it more readable but it takes too much time. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
