We had this idea to build a hackerearth based chatbot to help us keep up with all current hackathons and receive updates within slack itself. We wanted something that would give us repeated reminders about idea submissions and project submission.

How we built it
We used Lex, Lambda, Heroku server running python and Slack to build this solution.
