We love chatops, so it’s been a while since we started playing with the idea that Slack + NLP + AWS would be a killer combo to help us with our workflow. When we heard AWS was having a contest for Slack bots we decided to jump right in. We created a bot that lets you run query AWS from Slack, either with natural language or the CLI commands. The results are echoed for the whole team to see. It’s quite handy, you can try it out at Opsidian.ai.
We had experience working with Lambda and have been working on NLP and bots for a while, so it went nice and smooth. We all worked on the bot for weeks and we where quite happy with the result. We spend the weekend whipping up a demo video.
You can see our submission over at Devpost. Let us know how you like it 🙂 We have been working on the bot since then. Increasing it’s AWS service coverage, adding permissions, etc. we will be doing a release after the contest judging is done.
