This is for Rice-based groups (especially freshman) who may be interested in learning what Rice-specific words mean.
What it does
The project is a Slack bot that defines Rice-specific words in a fun way.
How I built it
Python Slack client API.
Challenges I ran into
The biggest challenge was an algorithmic one -- making sure that inputted words matched our dictionary of Rice terms correctly using standard libraries and regular expressions.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Having a working bot to demonstrate to the HackRice team.
What I learned
How to work with the Slack API.
What's next for RiceSlang
We'd like to make the bot more sophisticated and get it live on any workspace.
