Inspiration

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.
