I can struggle for hours to develop a POC but am wondering if somebody is interested in doing this. It might develop into a full blown project
There are a bunch of existing bot platforms you should look into, rather than spending hours writing a PoC. Best part is many of them can interact with multiple chat frameworks.
Personally, I’m a fan of Github’s Hubot, but there are many options available - look for a bot framework in your preferred platform and get hacking!
