Bot! zine - Issue #56
By Bot! zine • Issue #56 • View online
The top article this week re: Facebook Workplace isn’t technically about bots – however, I think it’s an easy assumption to make that bots are meant to be a part of that product at some point in the very near future. 
There are also two posts about Gomix (my friend Anil Dash recently joined that team as CEO for Fog Creek Software, which also makes FogBugz), which seems like a great resource for bot builders:
Gomix lets you start from a working app (or bot, or site, or whatever) and then remix it into exactly the app of your dreams. If you just want to change a button from blue to green, or add your logo, you can be running instantly. See a fun or smart Alexa skill or Slack bot? You can jump in, edit the responses to be the text you want, and have your own version running in just a few minutes.
Stefan, our botwiki founder, played around with it a bit this week, so check out his Twitterbot template below.
Have a great week!
