Slack Roomicorn

March 2016

  • Tools used: Ruby (Sinatra), Google Calendar API, Heroku

We have several conference rooms in our office, and sometimes you just need to jump into a room for a few minutes. So I built this Slack bot to show you which rooms are available for X minutes.

The Roomicorn checks to see which rooms are empty for the number of minutes you've requested and returns a list of available rooms. This is all done with the helpful FreeBusy Google Calendar API method.
