Let’s build an IRC bot!

Wraithan - New Relic

Most of us spend our time in Node.js building web servers and APIs. Others use Node.js for front end tooling. While HTTP is great, we’ll branching out and building IRC bots together. I highly encourage you to bring your laptop and follow along with me as we go through all the steps to get a bot connected to a channel and reacting to commands!

Wraithan is a Software Engineer at New Relic developing the New Relic for Node.js. Wraithan spends much more time than is reasonable building IRC bots, fiddling with hardware, and working on his open source projects. He is an organizer for PDX Node and greatly enjoys mentoring folks.
