Lightning:OmNomNom - Your friendly Telegram canteen bot
|Description||OmNomNom is a Telegram chat bot that knows the menus and business hours of many canteens. It is available via Telegram by the username @OmnBot. I will talk about the architecture of the software and the infrastructure I use to run and deploy the bot.|

|Desired session||Day 4|
I started OmNomNom as a very simple (and unstable) Telegram chatbot for a small lunch-meeting-chatgroup at my university. As time passed I overengineered it to a point where it supports more than 50 canteens, has a growing user base and runs in several containers to fulfill its purpose. From time to time people ask how the bot works and I hope to answer that during this short talk. I will talk about the architecture of the software and the infrastructure I use to run and deploy the bot.
