At Auth0 we live and breathe devops, and one thing we’ve been really amped over is chatops. We’re deploying servers globally right from Slack, we’re monitoring our infrastucture in Slack, and hey we’ve even integrated many of our SAAS / LOB systems in Slack.
Up until now, doing that has been quite a bit of work as you generally end up building custom bots, or building custom commands. In either case you have to package it up, deploy and host. Tools like Hubot go a long way to make the authoring easier, but you still have to stand up a server, configure it, etc.
