Getting started with your serverless Slack bot


Thanks for registering for our hackathon, we're excited to see your creation! To help you get started with your bot, here are a few places to start:

  • Visit our Resources page. Here, you will find the docs for AWS Lambda, Amazon API Gateway, and Slack APIs. We also have some community-built tools and examples to help you build a serverless bot.
  • See our serverless chatbot sample code on GitHub.
  • Our FAQs may help you find an answer to your question quickly.
  • If you haven't already, sign up for an AWS account. AWS offers a Free Tier to help you get started with our services.

The deadline for submissions is September 29, 2016 at 5pm ET - submit before then! Remember to read the official rules to verify you are eligible to participate and that your bot meets our requirements. Good luck!


We're here to help. If you have any questions about the hackathon, post on the discussion forum or email and we'll respond as soon as we can.
