About Botwiki

Botwiki was created in July 2015 by Stefan Bohacek with the goal of preserving examples of interesting and creative online bots, and providing tutorials and other resources to folks interested in making them.

Later in August, the Botmakers online group was set up as a safe and friendly online space for artists, tinkerers, bot enthusiasts, and seasoned developers to share ideas, resources, and their bot creations, regardless of their technical knowledge. We also run periodic in-person and online meetups and workshops.

We’ve now collected over 1,000 bots and awarded 218 botmaker badges! 🎉 For a complete list of our projects and initiatives, check out the Projects page.

All of our work is open-source, and everyone is invited to contribute. Feel free to connect on Twitter — or you can just say hi via email!
