I won’t talk about the details of the tutorial, but basically by the end of it you end up “making” a todo list app. And by “make” I really just mean you type along, which is fine because the guy actually does a pretty good and thorough job explaining things.
So with at least a superficial understanding of what’s possible, I should be able to use nodejs and pair it with a database (mongodb), which means for the slackbot I can have users save new words to the database and modify and export them as needed.
I think I went through the vids a little too fast though. My brain feels exhausted and I don’t really know how much I’ll end up retaining at this moment. I guess that’s what building out the bot will help me with =D.
Next step, go through this mongodb tutorial and hopefully understand how to host my own db and figure out how multiple users can interact with a database.
Until next time!
