Improve your team's productivity and encourage participation with social IRC bots! Find out how to create scoreboards, encourage positive communication by awarding points, and bring your bot to life using OpenShift, Red Hat's free auto-scaling Platform as a Service. We'll power our bot using an OpenShift "gear", then add a MongoDB "cartridge" for memory, and teach it to speak using a javascript-based IRC library for node.js. We'll attempt to accept feature suggestions from the crowd as we build.
