This month we are going to be writing python plugins for an ircbot, called burritobot. You can bring along your own ideas or team up with others on the day. Some starter ideas might be:
* "burritobot: whatson": a plugin to list upcoming sheffield usergroup meetings
* "burritobot: lastlink": a plugin to report the title of a given link (perhaps to judge whether the link is suitable for work)
* repeating a smiley when two different people use the same smiley in quick succession
* a plugin to determine the burrito obsession of users
* a (pretend?) text adventure game
* "burritobot: fight: burrito vs bot": a plugin that takes two things and determines a fight winner by which has more hits (or some other means of your choosing)
If you'd like to attend this meeting, please indicate that you wish to do so on this event page. To get the most out of the event, you will probably want to try to bring along a laptop.
If you wish to install the code in advance and play with the bot, the link to the github repository is https://github.com/sheffgeeks/burritobot
gives hints for installation and writing the plugins.
