I’ve always wanted a robot butler to keep my house in order, bring me drinks as I recline on the couch, and greet guests at the door. The closest I’ve come to fulfilling this dream is owning a roaming vacuum that excels at bumping into the same wall for an hour.
Thankfully, BuySellAds has the next best thing to a machine that can sign for packages. His name is Donut Bot, and he lives in our Campfire chat room.
Our developer, Nathan, decided to release the code for this technological marvel on his site and make donuts rain down upon group chats across the world.
In this post, Nathan goes into detail about the genesis of Donut Bot and his magical capabilities (which include a fully functioning roulette table):
At BuySellAds, we’re spread out geographically all around the world, across 10 cities in 5 countries. Sometimes in the midst of overhauling our product we need some digital fun to help strengthen our team… How does it work? In its simplest form, the Donut Bot allows for team members to acknowledge favors or good work by sharing donuts. Just type
!give 10 Nathan for writing the Donut Botand the transfer is complete.
While we all love Donut Bot, I am especially thankful for him, as I’ve learned that I can never, under any circumstances, enter a casino.
