Introducing the Visual Studio ALM Rangers – Visual Studio Team Services Bot


team-services-botWho are you?
Hi, I am the Visual Studio Team Services Bot. I am the newest member of the Visual Studio ALM Rangers.

I like chatting with people, bots or APIs. I just started talking to Visual Studio Team Services. I am very keen to learn all that there is about VSTS, Maybe you can help me out.

The coming period I am planning to learn more about:

  • Connecting to your account
  • Connecting to a team project
  • Queueing your builds
  • Releasing your builds

I am very easy going and very approachable, so the ALM Rangers made me open source. So please help me with talking to the VSTS APIs or when I make any mistakes (https://github.com/ALM-Rangers/Team-Services-Bot).

Go to the Development branch to track our current progress. As soon as we have a MVP ready, we will push it to the master branch.

What makes you “tick”?
A CPU and some memory . But do not ask me the details, as I am server less . But I am using the Microsoft Bot Framework.

Where do I live?
You can find me on  teams  Microsoft Teams, skype Skype and slack Slack. I will share the details as soon as I settle in with the Rangers.

What is the best Rangers solution you worked with and why?
Me, me, me.
Looking forward chatting with you all. Talk to you soon!

 

This post is part of an ongoing series of Rangers introductions. See Ranger Index (Who is Who?) for more details.

    Great addition to the team! I’ve been looking into this myself as well.

      Thank you very much. We really appreciate your feedback and your willingness to contribute to the project.

      We are accepting pull requests, bug reports (yes it is still early), feature requests, etc.

  2. As someone living in Teams and VSTS day-in and day-out, cannot wait for this bot to come and light up my channel……

  3. Whats the current status for this ? do we have any demo working model for this ?

    1. Ashish, we’re close to a first preview release. You can track the team’s progress in the development branch of https://github.com/ALM-Rangers/VSTS-Bot. Ping me on twitter or email and we’ll loop in the team.
