How to Create a Custom Slack Bot with .NET 7

Welcome, readers!

I am thrilled to launch my new blog series on building a .NET 7 Slack Bot that can interact with AWS Services. In this series, we’ll also walk through the entire process of setting up an AWS Elastic Container Storage (ECS) and a continuous deployment pipeline using GitHub actions.

To make things easy to follow, we’ve divided the series into four separate posts. Here’s what we’ll cover:

    💻 Creating a .NET 7 console application as a SlackBot

    🚀 Creating a minimal API with ASP.NET Core that interacts with AWS DynamoDB

    🔧 Create an AWS ECS cluster and sett up GitHub actions to deploy to our AWS cluster. 

In this first post, we’ll dive into creating the .NET 7 console application. We’ll be leveraging a 3rd party library developed by Simon Oxtoby to simplify the Slack integration process. Along the way, we’ll guide you through the setup of creating a Slack integration and show you how to implement a simple ping command in our application to verify that everything is functioning as it should.

So, buckle up, grab your favourite beverage, and let’s dive into the exciting world of .NET 7 Slack Bot development!
