About Slack's RTM API5:00 with Kenneth Love
Slack's Real-Time Messaging (RTM) API is just one of the APIs offered by Slack. This API lets you create bots that respond to messages and other events in the channels of your Slack group. In this video, we'll talk a bit about what all the API offers, what the bot we're going to create will do, and we'll get the bot user and its key ready for building the bot.
You'll need to get the slack-rtmbot project downloaded before you can follow along with this project on your own. You'll also need a Slack group you can add integrations to and then visit the
/apps/manage/custom-integrations URL for that group to create a new integration.
