Bot! zine - Issue #39

Getting back into the swing of being a full time employee for Growbot after 8 years of being a freelancer has been fascinating this past week – figuring out the new coffee machine, getting up-to-speed on everything the team has been working on, figuring out where all the good lunch places are downtown (you know, the really critical stuff). 
But it has also finally shown me how dependent on Slack we are (helps that we’re building a Slack bot). I’ve used Slack as a fan now for a while, mostly in interest-based teams (like Botmakers, of course). To see how it works as a work tool has been super interesting to me.
