About the Book
PoshBot is a simple but powerful ChatOps framework built in and for PowerShell that provides automation capabilities through Slack. This book helps both those already familiar with ChatOps and those new to the idea.
The book begins by covering the advantages of implementing ChatOps in your organization by explaining both the social and technical benefits it provides, then dives deep, guiding you through installing PoshBot, wiring it up to Slack, creating your first plugin, and leveraging PoshBot's rich set of capabilities to provide a first-class PowerShell automation experience through chat. Numerous scenarios for ChatOps are covered to provide a broad set of useful solutions to real-world problems encountered in the typical IT organization.
Examples in this book have been tested with the latest version of PoshBot (0.10.3) as of this writing.
This book is written by the creator of PoshBot, Brandon Olin. It doesn't get more first-hand than this!
